The Scream (Explained) - Poem by Chuck Audette

horrified shout
anguished face
she went out
without her wig in place

(inspired by the Munch Painting)

    That painting has been showing up in a lot of novels that I've read lately. A woman would indeed look like that painting if she found she'd left her house without her hair on. (Report) Reply

    Great visual, Charles... I know some girls who react that way to a bad haircut! Funny stuff, as always!

    Short, snappy, hilarious. Fantastic. Now can you tell us what the Mona Lisa's smiling at?

    Hilarious word-picture, fitting the painting perfectly! (I find the painting so grotesque that it's impossible to look away.) I'll probably always think of your words whenever I see it. THANKS! (Report) Reply

    Ok, funny! There was a suggestion that The Scream was a memory response to the delayed northern arrival of the tsunami and hellish skies following Krakatoa. I guess I'd forget my wig in those circumstances too! (Report) Reply
