David Maryasin is a freelance writer, editor, poet, and globetrotter based out of Queens, NY. If it weren’t for Nixon and Brezhnev’s relationship during the US-USSR period of “détente,” when border restrictions were loosened, my parents would have never been two Ukrainian immigrants who met in central Queens, and I would never have been born. I am the by-product of a friendship between two violent, egomaniacal, and insane men—but I still think I’m an alright dude though? You can find my word art here: www.davitoville.tumblr.com, and my sound art here: www.soundcloud.com/davitodavito. You can also follow me on Twitter @DavitoDavito where I act like T.S. Eliot on acid & tweet in stream-of-consciousness bursts about pop culture, rap music, and socio-political concerns.
