Julia greets the dog

Julia's home!
She wants me to chase my tail!
I haven't done that since I was two, but I think I remember how!
I do! I do! I do!
What now?


Here are two pieces from my "Portfolio of the Undone."
One: In the airport Native American store I buy a genuine full feather headdress. When they ask if I want it wrapped I say, "No thanks I'll wear it." Then I test whether, in order to secure the Homeland, it needs to be removed. Two: Carrying a harpoon, I go close to the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem and shout, "Thar she blows."
I know you can do better.
