Fuel for Thought Control

Fuel for naught
Plots
Demands control
Finds
The means to restrict
Expressions of human compassion

Cadae Pie

Steam rises from
Pie
Wafting gently
Through
The kitchen window
Drawing crows and Little Jack Horner

On the Nature of Unresolved Cliffhangers

Book
One
Ends with
Cliffhanger
And so does book two
The conclusion still unpublished

Toxic Crayon

Toxic Crayon has a toxic body and a toxic attitude, mainly because it erases a small part of itself every time it uses its superpower: to smear toxic crayon wax on people, places, and things. 

Toxic Crayon
Made of wax
Plus poisons, sickness, heart attacks
A C.H.A.O.S Minion small but potent
It weakens foes from folks to rodents

Tombs of Annihilation





I'm running Tomb of Annihilation on Roll20, the first time I've been a Dungeon Master...well, ever, in fact, though I've run other roleplaying games decades ago. On a lark, I asked Stable Diffusion to create some Tombs of Annihilation. Not bad.

81

We didn't know it at the time, but this was the last time Mom and Sean and Sylvia and I celebrated Dad's birthday--a few days early, on January 27, 2018. We had a nice time, and as I think about Dad on this, what would have been his 81st birthday, I'm grateful for that gathering and all the other times we spent together. I hope he's flying or watching a football game or cursing a blue streak while renovating a room somewhere.

The Reckoning

Now
Is
The time
Of judgement
The eye of Magog
Gazes down and finds you wanting

Bitter Orchard

Ripe
Sweet
But deep
In the heart
Corruption festers
And one bad apple spoils the bunch
