1. The Masochist Trilogy
I take the dog for a walk. I bring a stick.
I show her the stick. She gets excited. I direct her to go do her business.
She gets the picture.
She sniffs around. Stares at me.
Sniffs around. Stares at me.
I direct her to do her business.
She sits down.
I throw the stick. She retrieves it.
I throw it again. She retrieves it.
I throw it again. She goes and does her business.
I tried to play the dog. But the dog played me.
I got played by a dog.
I wrote a short story in high school, in the simplistic style of a children’s parable, that told the absurd tale of a lumberjack who cut down all the trees on Earth.
My English teacher was so completely baffled by it that he got me to read it aloud to the class in the hopes that someone else would know what it meant.
No one did.

The parable was about making the wrong choice for the sake of a short-term solution.
