The Eyes Have It

And since I've done so little for Poetry Friday for the last few weeks (mostly due to my noonish realization each week that, "It's Friday again?") I'm shamelessly stealing this from bookshelves of doom. It fits my Poetry Friday requirements to a tee:

A) It's creepy.
B) It's Shel Silverstein. Official Hot Dead Man of Children's Literature. *sniff sniff* Smell that? That's a new category for this site just ah-brewing and ah-percolating.

Fuse, really? Shel? Hot (though deceased)? Too much with the bare feet in the author photos. Always looks like he'd just as soon whack us with the guitar as have us buy the book.

Yes! He TOTALLY would have whacked us with his guitar.

Dude, I never said my tastes made sense. I also think Gene Wilder is cute. I doubt many would agree, though.

When it's late at the bookstore and I've been tired I pull out one of his books and make his photo talk (like a puppet). Since he looks a little scary, he usually says scary things.

Hmmm, maybe I really am insane.

I'm going to have to look at that photo again to see if I can detect hotness.

Fuse#8--you don't think Abe Lincoln is hot, do you?

I shouldn't give you a hard time, Fuse -- I think Lyle Lovett is hot.

You know, by all logic I should think Lincoln is hot. He fits my weirdo requirements to a tee. Tall. Craggy (I just had a conversation last night about the benefits of mondo de cragg). But who does my fickle heart beat pitter pat for instead? Teddy Roosevelt. I mean, they're both on Mount Rushmore, but how fair is that? Everyone should have at least one presidential crush. v

I totally get the Shel hotness thing. I was always a little attracted to the dangerous angry hippie photo. And Lyle, oh yes.

Teddy R., not so much. But whatever - everyone's got at least one guy on their hotlist that no one else gets. Mine is Henry Rollins.
