A tale I heard

Comedian Rob Delaney on the importance of talking openly about grief after the death of his young son Henry:

“If it’s raining out, the people who don’t want to acknowledge that or understand it are offering you sunscreen. If you could just hand me an umbrella or even be like, ‘Wow, it’s pissing out,’ then I’d feel sane. Grieving people aren’t lepers. They don’t need to be handled with kid gloves. They know what happened. Just acknowledge it, you know?”

A tale I saw

A tale I wrote

Micky's favourite food was mashed potato.
It reminded him of cold winter nights,
buttery chats with his parents,
gravy-soaked Sunday pub laughs with friends. 
And it was for those reasons it was his last meal
on death row.
