Autograph Hound Saturday rolls around and Autograph Hound Dog Brian Leno keeps landing major John Hancocks, even as the pandemic howls at his door. To defy the reaper Brian puts a memento mori spin on things, including the display of his latest haul, a T.S. Eliot.
“Some previous collector,” Brian writes, “had mounted it (pasted) to a large piece of cardboard, making it look fairly hideous.
“So a little emergency surgery with a knife and Eliot was free.
“He’s been enclosed in plastic (glued on the back) which could be easily removed — but enough operating for today.
“I stuck him next to a skull — not a real one, just a museum replica — and I think he looks pretty cool.
“Handful of dust, human skull before it turns to dust, what’s the difference?”
