Why This Must Be Read: I loved the minimalist approach the author used, and how each stanza showed a different glimpse of Arthur and his complicated relationship with Morgana. This pairing and angst often go hand in hand, and was beautifully done in this piece.

“I like the idea of making you regret things,” she said once with a smirk.

Looking back, maybe that’s how all of this began.

A statement, a smirk, a poking, a prodding and her.

But it’s always been about her, hasn’t it?

Arthur won’t answer that.
