The Blattaria Mind
by Dawn Leak
Discover how a beautiful young woman, CoCo Knight, chasing her dreams of becoming a famous actress/model in the Big Apple, suddenly becomes a ruthless, calculating, cold-blooded killer. Well, the secret unfolds itself within the narrative of The Blattaria Mind, where CoCo scuttles furtively away from humanity delving more into societal taboos and perversions. This dangerous beauty manages to mask her debauchery with alluring perfection. The essence of CoCo Knight is captured in this poem…
"Beauty is a monstrous attribute. It reels you in its deepest sorrows. It engulfs you in distress. As alluring as it can be…it is as well the devil's tool. Too dangerous to get caught up in, yet its necessity we desire."(Author Hanadi Azaiza)
