Waiting for the Light

My life is a joke, a melodrama, a bad after-school special featuring nothing but a litany of bullet points, parentheticals and Shakespearean asides:

  • I’m following Spike the stag beetle on Twitter.

  • An iceberg half the size of Jamaica has sheered off from Antarctica. (No penguins harmed in the trillion-ton mishap.)

  • Spawn of Putin is a cartoon super villain I've doodled again in my margins trying to lead the free world to safety. How now?
