[personal profile] ysabetwordsmith
This poem came out of the June 6, 2017 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by prompts from ZB on Dreamwidth, [personal profile] mirrorofsmoke, [personal profile] chanter_greenie, [personal profile] ari_the_dodecahedron, [personal profile] alexseanchai, [personal profile] ng_moonmoth, and [personal profile] serpentine. It also fills the "punishment" square in my 5-29-17 card for the Pride Bingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by [personal profile] janetmiles. It belongs to the Dr. Infanta thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.

Warning: This poem contains imagery which may disturb some readers. Highlight to read the warnings, some of which are spoilers. It takes place during and after World War II. Thus it features genocide, discrimination, extreme violence, death and destruction, killing captive Nazis via superpower, jailbreaking, erotic art, orphaning, traumatic rage, war trials, extrajudicial execution, and other mayhem. Please consider your tastes and headspace before deciding if this is something you want to read.

Heron turned to face Shiv, showing him the small injury. “Go ahead and touch if you'd like. It's a small, barely first-degree burn.”

Shiv shook his head. “I don't need to touch it. I've seen plenty of burns.”

Of all the “drawing things slightly more realistically in close-up” attempts I’d done in It’s Walky!, I think the final panel here is the most successful.  It’s more slight than the others.  There aren’t, say, sudden nostrils, or anything like that, and the irises keep their elliptical shape.  I almost kind of like it.

Hot on the heels of my Bloomington appearance, I’m gonna be in public a second weekend in a row (oh jeez), this time in my hometown of Columbus, Ohio. Cartoon Crossroads Columbus (CXC) is this week, and The Laughing Ogre has asked me to be their table artist guy this Saturday, September 30, from 2:30-6pm. This is at the downtown Columbus Metropolitan Library, and there’s no entry fee or badges or nothing. It’s just a library, albeit one that’s gonna be jampacked with other artist folks (who are all sweet-ass hot shots far above my station). So head on down to the library this weekend in Columbus!

Poem: "An Atmosphere of Shame"

[personal profile] ysabetwordsmith
This poem is spillover from the August 15, 2017 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] dialecticdreamer. It also fills the "naked / vulnerable" square in my 7-31-17 card for the Cottoncandy Bingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barrette. It belongs to the Shiv thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.

Warning: This poem contains some touchy topics. Highlight to read the warnings, some of which are spoilers. It features multiple references to past child abuse and neglect, social anxiety, financial anxiety, extreme body modesty, jealousy, shame, sex/gender diversity, creepy mannequins, visible scars from past abuse, unwelcome attention from Dr. G who quickly extrapolates the origin of Shiv's scars, unwelcome touching of Shiv by Edison who is too young to have learned better, lingering awkwardness from Halley's prior violation of Shiv's boundaries, and other challenges. If these are sensitive issues for you, please consider your tastes and headspace before reading onward. However, this is the beginning of the whole beach thread, so you need it to make sense of the later poems and the story "Family Stories" by [personal profile] dialecticdreamer.
