Ugh. The skald has gotten sick again. Though not as bad as in January when I suspected the flu, the timing is more inconvenient this time. So for this week, the blog is taking a sick day and there is no new poem or other content to post. As a brief note for the future, my experiment in writing slam poetry in the alliterative meters is going quite well, and posts of either a whole slam poem or some short previews are likely in the next month.
