Shakespeare certainly created something akin to what we have conjured this week, unsurprising given the words but impressive in the breadth of invention. John’s ‘pending quickness’ immediately set the tone, Atlas’ huge grin after a night in the whoremadillo house continued it and David’s smutty organic life forms finished it off.
This week, Joe’s ‘A change of mind’ is runner-up and Patricia takes first place, but I can’t decide whether it should be with Kursaal episode 121 or ‘Pure as the Driven’, so leave each of you to decide.
Words for next week: execute feckless Venice
