BOXING LIZARDEK

If I was meeting you for the very first time and I wanted to give you an idea of what kind of person I am, but couldn't actually tell you in so many words, this is the baker's dozen things that I would put into a box* for you to look at, read, listen to, and taste so that you could get to know me.
  • Webster's Collegiate Dictionary


  • mix tape with a homemade cover containing (among others) The Carpenter's On Top of the World, Mozart's Eine Kleine Nacht Musik, Smash Mouth's Walkin' On The Sun, Peter Paul & Mary's If I Had Wings, and Number Nine Martian Cutie from Sesame Street


  • full but firm pillow with a forest green pillowcase


  • calligraphy pen with a left-handed nib and a bottle of burgundy ink


  • framed lithograph of Alphonse Mucha's Dance

  • meal consisting of a salmon fillet sautéed with lemon pepper, fluffy white jasmine rice with butter, salt and black pepper, fresh green asparagus tips, a cold and bubbly glass of Classic Coke with ice, and for dessert, white chocolate and raspberries wrapped in pastry dough and baked in the oven


  • comfortable reading chair with a deep seat, plump upholstery and high padded arms that you can swing your legs up over


  • Palm One Zire 21 Personal Digital Assistant


  • battered copies of Mister God, This is Anna by Fynn, A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle and Little Women by Louisa May Alcott


  • bouquet of snapdragons


  • deck of playing cards


  • collection of poetry containing (among others) The First Duino Elegy by Rainer Maria Rilke, Question by May Swenson, The Fish by Elizabeth Bishop, and I am A Light You Could Read By by Marge Piercy


  • little black and white short-haired cat (don't worry, there are holes in the box, Schroedinger)
I probably forgot something. What would you put in YOUR box?
