The Communicator



With all his heart and soul
George loved his shiny bowl
with its shiny little handles
and itty bitty holes.

He wore it on his head,
when communing with the dead.
When he wouldn't talk to men from Mars,
they talked to him, instead.

I prefer aluminium foil hats! But it's just my opinion....

Catnapping said...

too fragile...and the wrinkles can interfere during sun flares.

"my favorite martian" nice idea and great shirt

bookbabie said...

I wonder if that would work when talking to the shadow people?
P.S. the Kettle Corn does come in chocolate:-)

TCA said...

One way communication is rude. It's rude of them to treat him like he's not there.

Laurie said...

I love the poem and the artwork. It is so kind of you to share your gift.

Ellis Nadler said...

somewhere joe said...

Judging by his appearance, George is under something of a strain.

You have a wonderful mind, cat, and the creative right stuff and technique to bring it to light. Thanks for all the treats.

I would TOTALLY come over and strip and wax your kitchen floor RIGHT NOW.

TOTALLY.

You just made my night, though, anyone as talented as you calling me a goddess (even if in jest) i can just go and die happy now.

Does God speak to George through those itty bitty holes? There's a surprising depth to your creativity, Cat. What's your muse?

egan said...

Is there a sequel to Signs coming out soon?

Ellen said...

Fun piece! Love the poetry that follows. Was the illo inspired by the poetry or the other way around?

Blue the Spa Girl said...

Amazing yet again...I totally dig your stuff. You are soooo original!

scribblesk said...

Cosmicaly zany and wacked out! Simply beyond surreal! Love it!

benconservato said...

Fabulous! Communicating with Aliens with a simple collander!
It reminds me of:
1. Don Quixotte
2. How in Australia there was a "fashion" at one stage to stop magpies dive bombing you, you wore a decorated ice cream tub on your head, very stylist. Only for kids.

Love your work, I will be back for another visit.

Switchsky said...

colander george
colander george
heard voices from a planet red

colander george
colander george
couldn't seem to find his head

colander george
colander george
strained his brains into the sky

colander george
colander george
buttoned his shirt and zipped his fly

safe within a collar purple
and fluent in the Martian lingo
he just needed a submarine
to share with John, Paul, and Ringo!

Georgie Porragie pudden' and pie.
Put on his hat and listened to the sky.
When the Martians came out to play, Georgie Porragie had his say.


What a treat! You just keep getting better and better!

Pragmatician said...

Tony Sarrecchia said...

itty bitty

i love it.. and this phrase brought back a time in high school when i once answered a rather sever teacher using the term to describe small countries... in the Domino theory i think...

he told me small would do... but i like itty bitty better
