I once perhaps lingered too long on
Sarah Lawrence College’s MFA in Creative Writing website. Since then whoever, or
what bot, manages their web advertising has had an ad follow me around the web.
It seems wherever I surf there is this ad featuring a comely and sincere looking
creative writing teacher holding her hand up, with a slightly bent forefinger,
as though she were instructing me. After a month or so, being followed around
the web by her, my intended instructor, I think of her as a stalker.
