Michael Plotke

Michael Plotke grew up in Los Angeles, which he hated; visited Mexico to see his grandpa, who’d gone native; lived in Vancouver a while, as the US seemed ill fated; went to boarding school in New York, which is highly overrated; moved to Mercer Island, where rich people have invaded; learned at Yeshiva in Israel, where he was meliorated; saw Prague and London, left invigorated; returned to Seattle, to become secularly educated.
