    I was playing around in the kitchen for salad time, and since I had just cleaned out the fridge and pantry of expired condiments and sauces, I discovered a stash of Louisiana Gold's Green Sauce. I never really touched the stuff after an initial test because it tasted too much like vinegar and not enough like a hot sauce for what I want at the dining table. I was thinking about what my next dressing would be, and I though that since it was so mild and so vinegary, using it in place of vinegar in a vinaigrette might not be out of place. Since I was adding at least some spice, I thought that using peanut and sesame flavours would fit, being inspired by peanut satay sauce.

    I used 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, 1 tbsp sesame oil, 1 tbsp green sauce, 1 tbsp peanut butter. I added maybe a teaspoon each of garlic powder and ground tumeric just because. I liked how it turned out, but since peanut butter is kinda thick I'd probably add a bit more green sauce or some rice wine vinegar to thin it out next time.

    Thank you for your critique, Ilvaldi. I don't mean to defend my poem, but I'd just note that the images are meant to lean more on the literal side than the allegorical side. Also as far as my poetry goes, I write for myself more than anyone else; sometimes I don't think of an audience at all. Your criticisms are perfectly valid, though. For example, if it were something that I would re-write for a purpose other than introspection, I imagine that using the names of gods instead of those basic natural elements would aid in the goal of presenting something more literal.

    My vote goes to echoe. Not really feeling this round, but I thought echoe's haiku was eloquent. Also I just realised that despite the similarities, my poem was not meant to be related to the haiku :p

    You might just go tribal elf. After the third activation, he should have tutored up a healthy board state to go aggro with. Four gets you masked admirers for a draw engine and if you ever make it to five there is brawn.
    This doesn't sound like a bad idea. When I thought of using the bard of the general, the first thought that came to mind was "don't count on getting more than a few counters on him." So if I were to make a deck with it at the helm, I'd be looking for a strategy revolving around low-CMC creatures, keeping your toolbox capabilities in mind. Elves could be one way to go about that.

    vicarious liberty

    sometimes i stood outside at the height of night
    the wind would toss my hair in a fit of boredom
    once more the air pleaded for spiritual company
    but my skin was numb and my mind was locked
    i could not join my friend in silent revelry
    my mirth was hidden under jade carapace
    and i thought she might never set herself free

    i asked the sun to lend me her strength
    she taught me how to sing in the long days
    and with some help i stepped onto the green
    singing a lullaby of wispy afternoon clouds

    your smile set my happiness free
    it was all i ever needed
    I missed the midsummer festival that the local Scandinavian community puts on last year, and the year before that was pretty miserable. This year I managed to fight my dizziness enough to partake in a few hours of it, and I really enjoyed myself.

    she returns to solidarity

    the fluid crash of contentment dropping from your sternum
    would make the mightiest waves of the seven seas tremble in awe
    to have the rolling rhythm of a content life
    be for another a distorted paralytic shock
    a perversion of that endless motion
    to fall at once trapped in a static chamber
    to lie stagnant as would a corpse
    would be unfathomable as the moon

    but they will roll on all the same
    and no swells will wash onto your chest
    to wash away that void

    I don't really remember what exactly what provoked this one. Don't like how I reused 'content' so quickly.
