On Eagles

February 27, 2012

Marcel Broodthaers, Museum of Modern Art, Eagle Department (from flickr user lightsgoingon)

When I was a kid, I wanted my nickname to be Eagle, but I only ever got two or three friends to call me that. I got the idea from a leather thong necklace with a pewter eagle’s head pendant that I bought at the Champaign County Fair one summer.

The hawker who sold it to me used a soldering iron to inscribe by initials on the back of the eagle’s head. But the letters were completely unintelligible.
