Huh

I guess today was El Santo Day.  Happy Birthday, my luchador namesake!

The Best Optimus Prime Costume Ever

best-optimus-costume

Halloween is coming, and with it the plethora of store-bought costumes.  When I was growing up, though, my favorite costume was Optimus Prime.  It wasn’t anything you bought in the store (which, in the 80’s, was just going to be a garbage bag with the word “Transformers” printed across it, anyways).  My dad created a cardboard Optimus for me to wear one Halloween.  It wasn’t very accurate to the cartoon, but a lot of love went into it.  It’s still my most fondly remembered Halloween costume to this day.

NaPoWriMo #28: Send In

Greatest Show on Earth
Plunged over the past decade
Declining interest
Send in the clowns — please!

On the horizon
A national clown shortage
Old age
Higher standards
Employers align against Krusty
Bozo
And their crimson-nosed colleagues
Send in the clowns — please!

Clowning isn’t
Cool anymore
Clowning is
Then put on the back burner
Kids these days
Thinking about everything other than clowning.
Send in the clowns — please!

The older clowns are passing away
Difficult getting younger people
Is it no longer good enough?
Clowns — please
Clowns — please
Send in the clowns — please!

A poem made of words from a newspaper article! This was culled from a NY Daily News article about a “National Clown Shortage.”

NaPoWriMo #27: Invisible

There, On the streets
A hundred feet
They are no less invisible
Then when they were corporeal

The challenge for Day 27.
