MAGPIE...Prompt #101


                                    from Boris Hoppek's Tokyo exhibit..."Ever"

INSPIRATION.  Mystery?  Thanks to Tess at Magpie Tales.


BETTER THAN REAL

Pull the strap that binds
and up jumps
glamorous Anime Annie,
the exotic Animatronic Geisha.

Lotus scented little dream girl
from Proctor and Gamble
and Disney,

she'll dance on your back
with her loufa feet,
scamper up and down your spine,
splash bubbles through your hair
for a scintillating shampoo.

And when you're finished,
she's easily disposed of!

exotic Animatronic Geisha

I must say, to me, the image looked like a well wrapped bar of soap meant for the bathroom! Loved the words you used...

Helen said...

Big business ... destroyer of the innocent and downtrodden.
