A Dog (Inside at the Metropolitan Museum of Art) (December 23, 2012)


Someone says, what’s a dog doing in a museum? I think I might have passed by at first, not really noticing. But there it was, all out of place, but sort of not really, a chihuahua and its human in front of Joan Mitchell’s Sunflowers (1969). Talk about brazen! Have you ever seen such a thing in your life? And this is the enigmatic thing. Outside of this digital image, you  will never see such a thing in your life, and I’ll never see it again.
