    Boy - by Camy

    Boy - by Camy. © May 2018 Downright blatant, he loiters by the tree cozening strangers with youth and sly glances. It is all a front, though not many see the pain buried inside transient amour.

    God made you this way

    @Cole Parker So sorry, I thought you said 'Priests being celibate.' Redundant journalists, tabloids shutting up shop, and choirs celebrating - Heaven forbid!
  3. Damn funny! But it is Wales - specifically Mid-Wales. They're an odd lot. A bit staid. Most have probably never heard of Kim Kardashian. The majority are bi-lingual with Welsh as their mother tongue - the name of the school might give it away: Ysgol Gyfun Gymunedol Penweddig. Try pronouncing that after a couple of stiff Lagavulins!

    My ménage

    East to west, my ménage has moved. More news to follow shortly. All remaining tickets to the bunker have been sold.

    Very black and Pythonesque, Cole.

    Cats and Music

    I wonder if it would work for Trump and Kim Jong-un, when they meet?
  7. A buddhist stops at a hot dog stand. "What would you like, sir," the vendor asks. "Make me one with everything."

    Cats and Music

    Human master? You have it all wrong, Chris. We're on the planet to serve Cats, not the other way around. Ask any of them.

    Support System, by James Merkin

    Bravo, James! You gave us a dark but relatively happy ending. I didn't like it. It made me shudder: powerful, but frightening. Would the protagonist have seen a twenty second piece about a murdered boy in the subway on the morning news bulletin, or would the boy have simply vanished? One or the other, probably. A perfect flash.

    Caravaggio Eyes

    Props, Bi Janus. Just wonderful. To be read many times. I hope you don't mind me inserting an aide-mémoire for: ...'held fast Wondering at the mouth And its plain question' Boy with a Basket of Fruit (1593-94) by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio

    A wonderful poem and turn on, so thank you. And another thank you, too: I'd never heard of Rodriguez, never heard any of his music, never heard of 'Searching for Sugar Man.' Now I have, and I have to get 'Cold Fact' and see the film. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sixto_Rodriguez

    Bravo, James. Perhaps, one day, we'll all be enlightened enough to realise that sexuality isn't a choice, and we are what we are.... Here's hoping.

    Seasonal Poetry

    Navy blue, coyly folded in my back right hand pocket, apparently.... Shocked, I say! Shocked, and rolling on the floor mostly crying with laughter. Not to mention mortified that I had anything to do with 'Spring of Teal.' Also, red should come with a pre-booked hospital appointment. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Handkerchief_code https://user.xmission.com/~trevin/hanky.html There was a dude who was pretty damn awesome until his hanky got dyed by mistake. He was far from a prude but lord when he saw some he threw that hanky in a bin by the lake. You have experienced a small thread hijack. Now, back to your regular programming on the AwesomeDude poetry channel. Great poetry for AwesomeDudes.

    Seasonal Poetry

    Swift and Tawdry compared to the marvelous two above. Still, it is Christmas. Consider this as a pair of socks... or a handkerchief from an aged aunt. There was a time Tum te tum When Christmas came Tum te tum My stocking was filled Tum te tum With presents inane Years went by Tum te tum I found my flame Tum te tum And so at last Tum te tum 'Santa' stuffed my ahhh... se

    King of Shreds and Patches

    TR left us a while back. He was a wonderful soul and I miss him. Wherever he is I'm sure he's happy you loved his story.

    Yep, we're like a gaggle of two legged jock-straps.

    Flash Fiction

    Flash varies, depending on who you talk to. Some say 300 words; some 500, we went for 1,000. Gee's 'After School Surprise' is, technically, complete. You might not like the ending, but it has one... or, perhaps he's leaving it open for someone else to continue?

    Watching the Inauguration?

    I watched. Couldn't not. The transmission cleverly omitted the appalled roar the crowd of protesters gave as he was sworn in. Then came his speech, and it all suddenly became real. A dystopia, often written about, is here. For real. Crap. Added to Brexit, the UK's nightmare, it's really not looking good. Hey ho. May the true force be with us all.
  20. A survey in 2012 showed that 55% of YA readers are actually adults. Harry Potter was printed with an alternate adult cover - for those embarrassed to be seen reading it.... Here's an article from the UK's Guardian that explores the reasons.
  21. I love science fiction. Especially the very English writing of John Wyndham. You'd probably know him for titles like 'The Day of the Triffids', 'The Chrysalids' and 'The Trouble with Lichen'. He died in 1961. Very sad. Anyway, I'd just discovered that some of Wyndham's work was available on-line, and had finished reading a short story called 'Consider her ways', when lo and behold I stumbled upon a story by Drake Hunter called 'Through Different Eyes'. Go and read it, it's brilliant!

    Kidnapped For Christ

    I'd say it was unbelievable, but I'm finding out there's a lot going on out there that's unbelievable. Do parents seriously think they'll ever see their children again after sending them to a place like this? http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kateslogan/kidnapped-for-christ?
  23. An absolute classic! As well as being a magician John Lenahan is also a great writer. If you like fantasy and audiobooks then grab 'Shadowmagic' for free from www.podiobooks.com It's well worth a listen.
  24. Wow! Oh wow, oh WOW! If it wasn't 4:00am I'd be leaping about whistling and clapping. This is a fantastic story—which is entirely fitting and right, seeing as Gee started this 'Coming Out Challenge.' Of course it helps if you understand Ice Hockey and don't have to keep referring to 'The Moron's Guide.' 'Out of My League' is truly heartwarming, and I don't regret one minute of lost sleep.

    Tapping by Kit

    If you like a well written and very 'English' ghost story, then let me recommend 'Tapping', by Kit http://www.crvboy.org/stories/kit/t/c01.html
