Time Traveler's Potlatch
For Rousseau: A leopard of multi-colored spots.
For Edward Hopper: A perfect piece of lemon meringue pie in a diner at midnight where
the only other customer is Greta Garbo reading a book.
For John Cage: 7 empty birdcages, each corresponding to a musical note. Some are
elaborate Victorian wicker affairs; some of simple bamboo.
For Nate Hawthorne: An electric train, a board game based on the Salem witch trials,
and a bottle of fine sherry.
For T.S. Eliot: A crate of peaches with a note that reads: "I dare you."
For Laura Riding: A dictionary and a whip.
