new ink

:: i am a frayed and nibbled survivor in a fallen world and i am getting along. i am aging and eaten and have done my share of eating too. i am not washed and beautiful and in control of a shining world... but instead am wandering awed about on a splintering wreck i've come to care for whose gnawed trees breathe a delicate air, whose bloodied and scarred creatures are my dearest companions ::
