The Caucus-race and a Long Tale
The Thimble

A prize? I need a prize. I reach my hand in my pocket and find... a dental floss toothpick. It is medicinal green and smells of mint. I believe it is unused. Yes, it is unused. The first-place winner receives this tool of good oral hygiene. It is minty fresh and will help keep your breath that way. There is nothing more important to a first impression than fresh breath. Congratulations to all the winners, but especially to the lucky one to receive this special prize.

A Long and Sad Tail

I lost my best friend on the day my dog died.
She had been there through thick and thin.
We had shared homelessness and hunger.
There is no one like her anywhere.
Sophie will always have my heart.
She had puppies once.
They were taken.
I had love,
had hope,
goodbye!
