BWOMS Fresh Cuts: The Lizard King - "Where The Lights Never Seem To Go Out"

Welcome to Episode 4 of "Fresh Cuts," a series dedicated to showcasing the works of writers, storytellers, and songwriters in our community. On today's episode we welcome The Lizard King! 

Liz is a desert lizard who loves glitter and laying in the sun. Her biggest literary influences are contemporary poet Stephen Dunn, short story writer Raymond Carver, spoken word poet Michael Lee and poetess Maya Angelou. She has two meowing angels named Mr. Floofer and Toulouse. Some days she plays piano and goes until the cats start playing too. In her dream world, everything is covered in glitter.
