What song are you listening to now? Say something about it–what it means to you, who introduced you to it, something like that.
Vicious Traditions by The Veils. A beautifully haunting song that stands out a mile from the rest of their work.
What’s your guilty-reading pleasure?
It used to be Dick Francis novels, but I’ve since stopped feeling guilty.
Say something about the last poem you wrote!

Say something about a story you’re writing now!
Comfort represents a departure from my recent work: a change in tense, POV, narratorial voice, and based very much around an interior journey rather than exterior action. It’ll take some getting right, but it’ll be nice to change direction once again.
If you were a fictional character, who would be writing you?
A sadistic bastard.
