Red Rome

Found some neat poetry written from the view of

… a Roman plebeian c. 60 AD who, having surviv[ed] the persecution under Nero and the Great Fire of Rome, begins to rethink his spiritual apathy, all the while struggling with tyranny and the limits of his own manhood.

Some people are so incredibly creative with their projects. I don’t have the historical knowledge, nor a sufficient level of empathy to place myself into the shoes of a person from a former time, much less write POETRY with their voice. If I had gold to spare, I would love to donate to this. Alas, all I can offer is a tiny smidgen of publicity and my well-wishes.
