Nathan is the now show's 4th poet. His work is concerned with humanity's place in nature and what we mean to one another. In its examination of these broad and even ancient themes, it still manages to find the small and the personal, the concerns of the human.

The character of today's story jumps headlong into a culture he only knows as a spectator: the drag queen show. He is an outsider and feels like a fraud for it, yet this is how he feels not only to the drag queens, but to almost everyone in his life. He decides to prove himself to the world in one motion, through one spectacular show and transformation. Nothing ever goes wrong in putting it all on one big, last bet, right?
Conversation Topics: storytelling, movies, writing, fiction, literature, Blockbuster, movie theaters, short stories, Saul Williams, reading, horror, scifi, collaboration, graphic novel, novella, novel, Stay, travel, Spokane, Washington, regional writing, Inception, Zombeavers.
