"From the racks to the stacks to the best on wax......"
Seems the day didn't spring a leak and let the truth out. You have captured the mood and style of Maya. She was definitely unique. I am a new fan of her work. I am so glad I discovered her. Thanks for writing for the challenge!!
Haha. Such discomfort for a little success.
The legendary Sippy Cup of Life? or maybe the Cosmic Billiken?
"But it didn't leak" - brilliant, love it!
So nothing can or will be perfect but so long as it doesn't leak, it's okay.
Love this, Corey. A great distillation of the mood of the film, and your usual quirky POV to balance the rough nakedness of what is under that rubber blanket(ior maybe in the rubber room?)
I love this poem! You caught my interest with that first, brilliant line and made me want to read more.
I love the "but it didnt leak." It sounds a lot like my "at least" approach to life - at least I dont have leprosy, can still walk etc etc.......LOL.
This is quite wonderful, Corey--humorous, mordant, succinct, super-suggestive. My only caveat--dancing should ALWAYS be an option! k.
best description I've heard of a day maybe ever ~
