Expanding Wee Bits of Dark Fiction and Poetry, 6

Two weeks have gone by since “Weirdest” leapt in defense of her home. I’ve been a tad busy with family birthdays, medical appointments, delighting in the colors of autumn…

But I’m here now, right? And I’ve listed five of the word Bits I’ve shared on Instagram or Facebook this last handful of days. Do leave a comment letting me know which Bit you would like to see grow into a story or a full-length poem. I shall develop the one with the most votes. Please make your choice before Monday, November 23rd at 1:13pm EST.

1) Which bit do you wish me to develop?
2) Would you like your choice to be flash fiction or longer poetry?
3) *optional* Why?

Here is the short list:

“Balance”
Night cannot be avoided;
to preserve vision,
in light,
become the darkness.
– blacked out from the US Marine Corps Field Training Manual

“Inert Brain”
ash and air
in an inert brain—
this is death
– blacked out from Ageless Body, Timeless Mind

“Whispers”
crepuscular fall
a forest whispers of death—
in the hearts of poets.
– created from my Edgar Allan Poe magnetic poetry kit

“Be”
Un-earth your senses;
imagine
and be.
– blacked out from Ageless Body, Timeless Mind

“Miseries”
Prejudice is the breath of human miseries.
– blacked out from Ageless Body, Timeless Mind

Expanding Wee Bits of Dark Fiction and Poetry, 5

Yep, there has been renaming. Since I’ve been adding bits of poetry and fiction to images I like, scribbling on Jeremy A. Bastian’s Discordia (I told you about it on this post), and I’ve been playing with adult coloring books and other things, I felt that “From Blackout Poem Bit to Flash Fiction or Full-Length Poetry” was no longer descriptive enough.

You know how it goes, my Wicked Luvs… Below, I’ve listed the Bits of poetry and fiction I’ve shared on Instagram or Facebook since “A Spirited Soul”, winner of From Blackout Poem Bit to Flash Fiction or Full-Length Poetry, 4. Leave a comment letting me know which Bit should grow into a story or a full-length poem?

1) Which Bit do you wish me to develop?
2) Would you like your choice to be flash fiction or longer poetry?
3) *optional* Why?

Here is the short list:

“Falling”
I fall
in love and lust
with you
13 times a day,

and

13 times a day,
you
show me why
I will continue falling.
– handwritten (not blacked out)

“To Be Tasted”
Books
damage ignorance.
Drink books
in volumes.
Books are to be tasted,
swallowed,
digested
– blacked out from Caring for Your Book

“The Wee Memoirs of a Victorian Mourning Doll”

“Weirdest”
Having lost a leg, fighting
man’s ravishing of the land,
the fox chewed on killer-grass
and lay down to die…

death didn’t claim her—
Gaia blessed her
weirdest.
– handwritten on Bastian’s Discordia

I shall turn the Bit with the most votes into a story or a longer poem, depending on your choices. Please, cast your vote before Sunday, November 8th at 1:13pm EST.
