About me

Gender MALE
Industry Education
Occupation teacher, poet, editor
Location the milky way
Introduction Sam Rasnake, a sardonic twist of fate, is a pathetic excuse for a poet who once dreamed he was a human who dreamed he was a teacher who thought he could play guitar. Along the way - a soul-mate, two children - one collection, Necessary Motions; three chapbooks, Religions of the Blood, Lessons in Morphology, and Inside a Broken Clock. He even thinks he edits a magazine - Blue Fifth Review.

What did you dream when you ate a spider while sleeping?

The dust of stars across the dark roar.
