Daniel Plate

She's Never Been So Tired

If nobody ever calls again
And the doors to the house lock shut on her
She will be content 
To think of the windows as her eyes 
And live as the brick-locked brain of her house 
Until the food runs out. 


Dan Plate grew up overseas (Nigeria) and has lived since high school in various places around the Midwest. He now lives in Illinois near the Mississippi with his wife and three kids, teaching and indulging a hobbyist’s interest in everything mathematical.
