Here is this week’s list of poems, short stories, calls for guest posts, and other links from my favourite corners of the web.
I Am Sound via ajh_books. This is one of those links I find occasionally that works best if you know nothing about it when you start reading.
“Oh My God, That’s the Haggis Exploding” via GlenRStansfield. I couldn’t stop giggling at this and wondering how big the explosion was.
How the Main Coon Cat Learned to Love the Sea. If I wasn’t allergic to cats, I’d want a Main Coon or two of my own. They’re beautiful creatures.
If Everyone Ate Beans Instead of Meat. I’ve long since replaced meat with beans for a few of my meals in the average week. This article makes me want to do it more often. What a cool way to reduce greenhouse emissions.
The Box via WMASLAM63323693. First you must begin with the phrase “thinking outside the box.” What this blogger did with that idea is well worth reading
I Am Accused of Tending to the Past. This is another one of my favourite Lucille Clifton poems. If you lived next door, I’d come over and read it to you if you were okay with that. I find that poetry is often more meaningful when people hear it aloud.
Tolerance Is Not a Moral Precept. I couldn’t agree with this more.
From Fast Gas:
How was I to knowit would begin this way: every cell of my bodyburning with a dangerous beauty, the air around me
Also, my friend AuthorSJB is looking for guest bloggers:
Happy to consider guest posts on my blog. Preferred subjects: authors/writing; mental health; sepsis; going barefoot; Doctor Who; Arsenal.

Contact him through his site or on Twitter if you’d like to be featured there. I’m thinking about doing it myself!
If your site is looking for guest posts, I’d be happy to mention it in a future Suggestion Saturday post. While we’re on the topic, I accept guest posts here as well. I have two that are in the works at the moment, but I’m always looking for more.
