Feel free to bring booze and snacks.
Rauan Klassnik was born a long time ago. Rauan Klassnik is not dead, though he often sure-damned feels like it. Rauan's primary goal in life is to live forever. Perhaps this explains why he has such a bad attitude. Rauan Klassnik does, though, believe in singing. Like Emily Dickinson on the charnel steps. His poems have appeared many places and his first book, Holy Land, released April 1st (no joke) from Black Ocean.
