It is a case for an iPad. Made of wool and milkweed thread and with a sawn piece of antler for a button cut from the deer the woman who sold it to me at the Damariscotta Farmer’s Market here in mid-coast Maine had shot and eaten.
It is true that the machine fits perfectly, hand in glove. She did not know for certain that it would, having only found the dimensions by looking for specifications on the Internet.
In Austin I am always sniffing for the authentic moment, the honky-tonk man or the hooker on the block, here in New England there are as many, just dressed differently (carcasses and experiences both).
