Plato’s Cookie

As an April Fools joke, the university that I will be attending next year released incredibly bizarre essay prompts for next year's admissions cycle. Although they were not meant to be taken seriously, I decided to write an essay on one of those prompts. Here it is: "To prefer evil to good is not in [...]

Words

A soft fluttering of delicate wingstentatively emerge from the infinity of the paper.Like those of a moth, quiveringinto the domain of the deck lampand dissolving, again,into the darkness.Always the insufferable default. No one recognizes the momentwhen a fly gives up on life:its last twitch deafened by the silenceof the its cage. Spoken word organizes the [...]

Congratulations on finding me. Guilty as charged! But in all seriousness, I [...]
