In his spare time, his hair and fingernails grow twice as quickly. He once could have been found living across from Calvary Cemetery in Woodside, but he does not do that any longer. A problem child (the quiet kind), he once threw nude drawings into the yards of his neighbors. No one suspects much of him—or so they think. He is a pisces—the real kind—born in 1990. He will be graduating from Purchase College in no time with a B.A. in philosophy and soon after attending a Doctorate program at whichever school funds him. His current academic work fixates on the intersections between Spinoza’s ethical philosophy and contemporary gender studies. Eric Rodriguez is a poet and he did not even know it.
