I want to thank all my friends and watchers for the faves in advance and for your support I am very grateful.
A Mannequin In A Window
The mannequins in the shop window
A new girl arrives today.
She was real once,
as were they.
as it had done to so many before,
had stilled her soul.
Soon the rest of her followed.
Now she lays, frozen in plastic perfection,
in the dirty storage room of the store.
She is dressed roughly,
all former privacy forgotten,
by a shopkeeper
who thought she saw,
in the dim light of that room,
a single tear in the eye of the mannequin
before she placed her in the window,
to always be displayed
but never again
Or to think
a mannequin in a window.

You just said the most sweetest thing to me ever, Meli. Thank you for supporting my desire.I do so long to be a beautiful mannequin, forever frozen in time ...plastic beauty...my limbs removed so i can have new ones to support my torso and posed into ultra-feminine graceful lines. To watch the humans go about their lives and provide a useful function to model styles that entice humans to buy.
It is a joy to see you as well, Meli.
Oh you are so welcome and I mean every word of it too, I know how much you wish to be a mannequin. I have a few friends that really admire mannequins but no one feels as strongly as you do. I think it is sweet. And I am just looking at your drawing I do not know when you did that one but I will certainly fave it.I love the way you drew the mannequin
