    Jus in Inordinatio

    EDIT: After a conversation with a friend, I've been convinced that despite agreeing in principle with the points that television host Tucker Carlson makes in the portion of his commentary I've transcribed, expressing the points in my own way would be a better way to convey my thinking. That said, it seems right to retain what I'm no longer using via use of the "spoiler" tag so that a

    Vignette Number One Complete

    I got the first of these planned side stories done and dusted, although I'm now trying to locate art that fits the story or that I could fiddle with to conform to the story. Something with Nightmare and Chrysalis in it, but not erotic because the story is pretty PG/PG-13. Maybe if anyone reads this, they can suggest an artist or some artwork. Point is, it'll be put up when I can find the right

    A Minor Announcement, A Recommendation, and a Contemplation

    It has been quite a while since I've used this thing and I have a sneaking suspicion that a lack of chattering in blog posts is probably one of the many things I'm doing to sabotage myself as far as getting active interest and commentary on my writing. I suppose I just don't have a great deal to say, at least nothing that makes me think of opening a blog and posting something in it. Based on how

Tea · 6:17am Feb 7th, 2014

Gentle rain sopping
a princess waiting on a vertical log
twisted fiber binding the wrists
to a backwards hug.

O'er the post of forced waiting
a single shadow
of bat and reptile
catching the rain on a v-shaped tongue.

"I apologize that you waited."
And there was a chuckle in the slithering voice.
"I don'g begrudge you."
And there was the brave smile.

"But perhaps in your infinite time
ans sense of this being your place
you could, please, undo this yarn
and set the tea to boil?"

And there was a chuckle in the slithering voice.
"Snip the thick twine with scissors, see?"
And it was done.
"Come let us, milady, go to our tea."

"Such rudeness you humans have."
And there was a chuckle in the slithering voice.
"Strapping a teenager to a pole
and hoping the dragon will eat her, tsk, tsk."

"Am I not tasty?"
and she giggled at her host:
maze of disconcerting lines
built into gentle armor of scale.

"No, milady,"
and there was a wink in the slitted eyes.
"But you like me,
and friends aren't easy when you're
dagger-toothed and winged."

"So how long this time?"
"Oh, perhaps a week or so."
"Then suppose you need a new gown?"
"Oh, this old thing?"
and there was a giggle in the voice.
"No, t'was a rag in any case."

Lemon, sugar?
Something else in your tea?"
"Perhaps whiskey."

"Whisky and tea,"
came a terribly friendly laugh.
"So contradictory you humans:
race the heart and slow the mine."
"We're already slow of mind."

"So, what was the reason this time?"
"I'm a virgin still."
"Oh dear... when will you fix that?"
A delicate sip.

"When I find the time
and tire of winged company."
and there was a wink in the round-pupil eye.
"Or perhaps the pole you travel on?"
and, of course, the grin.

"More then?"
"Race the heart and slow the mind?"
"Only if there's whiskey."

"As my princess commands,"
and there was a smile on the long face.
"Just... one thing, if you please?"
"Same as always?"
"Please milady."
"Very well then..."

"Naught a knight in shining armor
you've my word."
And it was a good time to be at tea.
