|Vasillisa and the Baba Yaga by Biffno|
This week's question and answer (via poet and oracle Taisia Kitaiskaia* of The Hairpin):
I think these people may be just as addicted to reading Baba Yaga's word soups as I am:
- "always will there be more Whirlings & more absences suck to those fragrant ribs."
HEART HEART HEART (PomoFrannyGlass)
- This is the only advice column that matters. (Potatotoe@twitter)
I feel an urge to print out many of Baba Yaga's "word dancings" to pin up around the house... Reading these is a little like crack, in poetry form.
What do you think of Baba Yaga's advice?
Want to ask Baba Yaga a question of your own?
There's now an email address where you can send your questions
directly to Baba Yaga herself.
AskBabaYaga AT gmail DOT com
To encourage Baba Yaga to continue imparting her no-bones-about-it wisdom (ok, there may be some gristle in there... bones too), I suggest we not to leave her box empty...
Thank you Baba Yaga (& Taisia).
