I am at the gym the other day, with a back issue of The New Yorker – I see a poem entitled “Dothead” written by someone with an Indian name (Amit Majmudar) – so of course I’m going to read it.

Well yes, I said, my mother wears a dot…”  The last few lines are (for lack of a better word) awesome – with a reference to Nataraja.

Full poem here.  Maybe I’ll start sending my kids to school with a ketchup packet.
