Beautiful ... loved the doll :-)
not easy to experience oneself as the doll others see us as, to take that in and believe we are hollow inside an painted, plastic shell.
makes me think about how we see ourselves...or accepting what others think of us...limiting ourself...
LOL.... I do not like dolls (or clowns)...never did..never will... your picture just reminded me why. Nice allegory though Hank.
That doll is kind creepy, I would not want to be as such, I have to strings haha
This made me smile, Hank; but I also got the idea that this poem could take off and become a movie....and, as Pat said, the doll is creepy; and I think the movie might be too.
reminds of a horror movie with similarly creepy dolls.but then again since festive season is upon us, I guess this is also a time for such toys and more.
I am with Abin---great write!
Funny yet prodding. Clever, really.
The female Chuckie - hee hee. Clever write in so few words.
And you pulled it off -succinctly and even a bit of humor! good one.
Beyond reproach? Almost makes me want to be a doll! Very creative approach to this one.
I know a person just like this... well done!
Hank, I think this is a cute doll. She's beyond reproach for sure, to cute to be bad...
So cute, and I have to agree - beyond reproach; oh to be a doll!
There's a magic beyond this doll in this one. Well done.
Oh those 'dolls' think they can get away with anything...and often do. What a creative write Hank--great take! And I agree with Daydreamertoo on dolls and clowns...
:) of course beyond reproach.. and even if there is reproach, would she care?
I find these doll faces slightly freaky, but I really like where you went with this prompt.
Perfect. Meets all the criteria.
Dolls are mindless, people aren't. Perhaps this is a fun sarcastic way of reminding each other of that.
