Cake Somebody Momma Made & She Put Her Foot in It http://ow.ly/VWU7503TxMo
I. From “Blood Labyrinth” I split and split again and wade in pools of skin to gather into folds. There is a rhythm to it and a rhyme and a burgeoning desire. Part and main part, in which to take and grant sanctuary to excess and radiate defiant aliveness and injurability. To know by coccyx, [...]

Introduction
I am not a hero, possess no fortune, haven’t changed the course of mankind in any way.

I am unaware of any whose life has been permanently altered by knowing me, and for the most part I know nothing about their lives today.

On the other hand, I am no serial killer, thief, dictator, malingerer, or miscreant. I am not in jail or institution. Some were sure I would be.

I am not dead. Bets were surely placed on how long Id last.

Mine is a story the world could probably do without, but for me, it is one that must be told.
