My kingdom for a box of pretty words: I like to live between
bookends. Chris Kraus. Marjane Satrapi. Audre Lorde. Witold
Gombrowicz. Everything Persephone Books ever publishes.
Insane quantities of tea. The swanky, lovingly selected kind.
I adore the theatre. Read: Wajdi Mouawad. I have strikingly intense
memories of: The Judas Kiss, above and beyond Rupert Everett's
propensity to be an idiot IRL, Cheek By Jowl's Ubu-Roi, Logan's
Peter and Alice - cannot even begin to even. Being articulate is
overrated. My heart, it hurts. A student production of Julius

(Although his Henry IV gives me suspension of disbelief issues). OH
GODS THE OLD VIC'S CRUCIBLE. Also anybody who wants to bask in the

Maroush's delivery area. Please please please extend this deadline

Donna Haraway on Foucault: "flaccid". BOOM.

unbearable maleness. Vandalising reading aloud as a defiant act of
reclaiming — sans the destructiveness of spray painting hallowed
halls in indignation, which is anachrononistic and unhelpful
anyway. Broadening the possibilities for poetical depth, post
Basically I'm doing Yeats et al. a favour. You're welcome, guys.

You're going to show up to a park bench date with blueberries and
sit there while I flail about the layers to Sylvia Plath.
Alternatively you'd like a fawning sycophant to hold a candle to
