Consentacle by Naomi Clark is “a cooperative card game for two players; that represents a consensual sexual encounter between a curious human and a tentacled alien; where the players have to figure out how to build trust and do sexual things with each other, even if they can’t communicate easily.”
It kind of turns the tentacle-hentai trope on its head by making it about consent instead of rape. Sounds like a fun game, but it’s not available yet.
" It’s not currently for sale–there are only four complete sets in existence … I’m overwhelmed by the positive reception and interest in the game, and something like a Kickstarter is not out of the question in coming months."
Consider the Space Between Stars
Consider the white space
between words on a page, not just
the margins around them.
Or the space between thoughts:
instants when the mind is inventing
exactly what it thinks
and the mouth waits
to be filled with language.
Consider the space
between lovers after a quarrel,
the white sheet a cold metaphor
Now picture the brief space
before death enters, hat in hand:
vanishing years, filled with light.
