Taking a break from my weekend long qualifying exam to post this. I want to have some bad literary/poetry costumes–like a bad costume contest. I want people to wince when they see my costume(s).
So far I have a few ideas:
Sylvia Plath: Walk around with an EZ-Bake Over on my head carrying a basket of bread and some water (the last meal she left out for her children before her suicide).
Emily Dickinson: Wear all white and carry a screen door and talk to people through the door and never really to them (at the height of her reclusive hermitage, she…did so).
Hemingway: Wear a cabana hat, have a cat with me, and a shotgun.
James Franco: Asleep, reeking of pot and carrying books that shouldn’t have been published.
Too soon for these? Bad taste?
