Ironic Fashion Shoot

For me, what elevates irony over sarcasm is a dose of humor.

I like to imagine each member of this crew, sporting the same scruffy costume, doing the swivel-hip runway strut, flaunting a thousand-yard stare behind their John Lennon shades — just like the best models. An elegant crowd watches appraisingly; curated music pipes ambiently; a silken voice intones presidingly.

It has a delicious pointlessness to it. It’s ironic!

About JMN

I live in Texas and devote much of my time to easel painting on an amateur basis. I stream a lot of music, mostly jazz, throughout the day. I like to read and memorize poetry.
