The plate project continued! I may yet get around to these someday.
"One last bite," God said. "A world war, an atrocity, the death of your children . . . Just a little more."

Two more titles: "Human Clay"'/"Lick the Platter Clean"
The Life of Mondrian (In Three Parts)
1. Mondrian was born in a cave in the Alps and raised by wolves.//This wolf [somehting] all his [something] work.
He could not speak recognizable words. He could not draw a stick-figure man. His teachers despaired that he ever would.
[2. Equally Fantastic]
[3. Rarefiedly genteel realism.]
A hunter killed his parents with an ax.
The Life of Mondrian sounds pretty good, actually. I should write that someday.
Rough out with paper plates.
