Editorial Outtakes by asks writers to discuss scenes they cut during the revision process. I wrote about a 1964 Seoul protest scene from IF YOU LEAVE ME that I cut & rewrote from a different character's perspective. This was a lot of fun!

"It was cruel, it was painful—but it was so kingly too. The court clapping and marveling, pretending they didn’t know, while the king spat seeds from his grapes."

"Cruelty and pain were easy quantities, but murder used to express something in him. Take the kings of Greece and Persia who entertained guests with hollow bronze bulls that seemed to bay when wheeled over a fire, when in fact it was condemned queens screaming from inside.

There are at least 17 poets who have been waiting their whole lives for the chance to name the moon of a moon and then scientists just mess around and call it a moonmoon. This is exactly why STEM fields need more arts and humanities education.
