"I'm old fashioned: Men dig up the corpses, women have the babies."

Both surmising the future, boldly stopping the fault. But, should these furnishings bother such tawdry fauna? Beggars, seek the fortunes bereft (sans twinkling forgeries).

For persevering this far: An actual bio! I'm an ex-student. I have a masters degree in English Literature. I was a performance poet, having been asked to (and thus have) perform at various things. I've written under and alongside a former Poet Laureate, I've written half a TV series and one-third of a novel far too explicit for Protag, countless reams of poetry... I was the youngest member of my department's teaching staff. That was weird. 22 and I have my MA. Now what?

And now, a complete lie about me:

  • I have beaten the entire nation of Belgium at table tennis.
