Things Fall Apart

What are these harsh and confusing times we live in? While marooned on the shores of a carpeted island I called home, I remembered the tale of Robinson Crusoe. My childhood memory of an exciting survivor’s guide to isolation revealed itself as a dark and gruelling tale. From unquarantined feelings of exasperation emerge the necessity to reinterpret this literary work and to weave into it, my desire to reach a sunnier place. However, my dreams of a tropical island and the tourist myths bestowed upon foreign lands are another dark tale, as complex and unredeemed as the journey once taken by Robinson Crusoe.
