Supple hands, I aside, under his chin, touching, always. I knew this. The yielding, head silver of a river's bend clear, triptyche. Yellow and sandy waving, red butter for a smile. Like my grandmother. Altitude. I topped listening. I dreamt, I ran, I the clothing overgrown. I held a umbrella, smelt of thunder. The rain, his tear. The rain plays on my head. My head is red, my eyes are open, my existence is total. Nothing happened. Not a thing passed between us. He wishes not to know. His hands slide in his pockets. A praying mantis plagued by madness. A plague written in the words of hell, unbeveled and panicked. Heaven burning. I ran dreaming unable to slow down, argyle and green leaves, paralysis and schizophrenia; his parallel inseams, those tears. The umbrella a cotton schwabb, a church cathedral still growing. Yet, such a senseless in the act – how I am I here? Over there, da drueben. The loss of aircraft, the border of ingenuity. The prowl is ecstatic, the eyes are sallow

I'm confused by these one-year fellowships. They're for grad students, not post-docs. Is the student supposed to spend the year at GMU? Or is this a way of giving them financial support while they keep working at their home university? I'm guessing that they should be doing free market oriented research but the application page doesn't say what the criteria are for the awards.

Interesting choice of names to use; Smith and Bastiat and Schumpeter for the undergrads, sure, but Morgenstern wasn't really a name that I was expecting to see.

These are fellowships at "George Mason/Mercatus", a narrower field than grad students generally.
