A bunch of tales I wanted to share with you

A tale I read

The Sleeping Pig by Jenny George

A tale I heard

Broadcaster Vanessa Feltz on family disapproval:

"A chorus of disapproval accompanied my childhood. If I went to wash my hair, there’d be one grandma on the phone and another in the kitchen both asking, isn’t it too late? Too early? Didn’t you wash it yesterday? I became accustomed to being constantly commented on and deconstructed. Suddenly you’re grown up, they’re all dead, and it’s lonely and quiet."

A tale I saw

Papyrus by SNL

A tale I wrote

Some days
I forget I have bones
and get scared
at how rigid I am.
I see something
like a puddle
or a splat of ketchup
and wonder how
I get little right.
