Bio for 2022

Chipped from the stump of a sunken ash and swoln with the syrupy spittle of lumberjacks, Goldie makes its way spelunking in crazing cracks of decrepit china, dredging up “others”, the moldering orts, the germs and grains, those fringes scuttling squirrels unknowingly nudge from louring lichens; always assembling some strange cut of karass or cadre bent on tickling kittens, always convinced some gold and emboldening day that they may just catch a kitten giggling. ‘Twas a kitten that taught the Kikimora all of its lordly indifference, all of its smug and dismissive grandeur, all its ill-gotten esteem and disturbing gibes. So should they make a kitten laugh, well, maybe they’d finally usher in some of that change you must hear about, gab of the murmurous scree, thrawn gossip of pockmarked stones, the strident slosh of pendulous purses... or maybe they’d just have something to gas about.

Reason for signing up:

Presumably, it’s becoming a habit, though more so, I rather enjoy this forum, believe it to be quite culturally important to Lexington and Kentucky abroad, and relish any excuse to share some dithering scribbling, like it or not.
