Biography
Fyodor Dostoevsky’s (1821–1881) first novel, Poor Folk, was published in 1846 to great acclaim. In the early 1860s he edited two magazines, Time and Epoch, in collaboration with his brother Mikhail. Both magazines were closed by the censors, and in 1864 his wife and brother both died, leaving him in charge of their families and deeply in debt. In that same year he wrote Notes from Underground, which was the prelude to the five great novels that crowned his work: Crime and Punishment (1866), The Idiot (1868), Demons (1872), The Adolescent (1875), and The Brothers Karamazov (1880).

“Well, technically batshit,” I’d tell him, and I’d remind him that, seeing as we were trapped in this cave—“Cave?” he’d say, and I’d say, “Yeah, the cave we’re recovering from eye surgery in,” and he’d say, “Oh right”—and that seeing as we’d be thus—“pardon the expression,” I’d say—interred for at least as long as it took to recover, that the cave would be, for all intents and purposes, what we’d have to mean, from here on out, by the word world; and thus bats, who were the only creatures still flitting in and out of the cave’s narrow apertures and thereby participating in the larger ecosystem and importing to an otherwise inhospitable environment the most basic elements needed to sustain life, their excretions would need to be, for the foreseeable future, what we’d have to mean when we’d say sun.

And all manner of head swerves.
Three people flew past me, but did not see.
It’s not even clear what happens to the chicken on the bobsled.
 
Trails . . . that slither with their cake.
Will you have more?
