A tale I read

The Mower by Philip Larkin

A tale I heard

Actor Donald Faison discussing his wife's role in his real life friendship with Zach Braff:

“I’m bad with e-mails and returning phone calls. My wife steps in and takes control, and ensures he and I are always in touch. She’ll be like, ‘Did you call Zach?’ And I’ll be like, ‘No, I didn’t call Zach.’ And she’ll say, ‘Call him.’ And I’ll be like, ‘Why do I gotta call him?’ So she’ll text him and say, ‘Zach, call Donald.’”

A tale I saw

A tale I wrote

After months of deliberating,
George decided to go meat free.
Removing all the flesh from his bones
was certainly painful,
and moving about became tough,
but he'd never felt so free in his life,
so light.
