INKTOBER 2018: Chop, Day 24

Art and Poem by Miguel Guerreiro Lourenço

Chop was today's Inktober prompt and to celebrate my home D&D game, I added a goblin ear to the kukri! Congrats to my players for defeating a whole cave of 'em. Lost Mine of Phandelver's going nice and slow. The poem's a bit depressing, but I'm fond of it! Below is the transcription of the poem:

it doesn't feel right

it's too cold. too heavy.

why can't I just chop

it off? it shouldn't

feel like a broken

crystal, each chunk

larger than the one

before--drained of


I wrapped it in three

pages of newspaper.

I tried to protect it.

See? Page two, here,

the obituaries. Why

can't I just chop it

off and join the rest

of them?
