Mime

When the city prohibited rhyme,
they decreed: Poets to be jailed a long time!
Prose now used in earnest,
a new evil surfaced -
the mime rate started to climb.

And no doubt if they ever did outlaw rhyme this would surly happen to the clever mime.

A mime with a bird mask/face...very well done!

haha this is magically wonderful! my husband was married to Loreen Yarnell and she and Robert Shields were mimes that had a tv show! do you remember them?

Thanks for commenting on my blog.

Now, if they did outlaw rhyme, half the locally produced t.v. commercials here in Topeka would go off the air. Mime would make us actually look at the television and not zap the sound.

of course I love it. did i ever ask you if i could use your art on my blog, i would put your name beside it (catnapping), but i'm practicing links, still not working.

Anyhow..

I fucking love it. Again.

Stunning. Love the graphic quality of this. Such strong contrasts.

Only you, and I mean this, could make me love a mime!!
I've never seen any use for them other than to be utterly annoying, but this mime,well...I'm smitten ;)

I love your name-changing drop-ins!
