 “There is a story about a prisoner at Alcatraz who spent his nights in solitary
confinement dropping a button on the floor then trying to find it again in the dark.
Each night, in this manner, he passed the hours until dawn. I do not have a button.
In all other respects, my nights are the same.”

 Jenny Offill, Dept. of Speculation, 2014
