Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Review: 2018.519 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: It's a very pretty, lyrical way to remind us that the only road everyone follows is the one that leads to death, which is our common destination.

Con: The narrator seems to have an unhealthy urgency about getting there.

This is more of a prose poem than it is a story.
