A heavy weight landed on you followed by kisses being pressed on your face. “Babe, wake up.”
Your sleepy (e/c) eyes fluttered open to see a smiling Isaac hovering over you. “Yes Gigantor?”
He huffed but the smile still remained on his face. “Do you know what today is?”
You tried to rack your brain for a clue as to what today is but came up short. “No, but I assume you’re gonna tell me?”
“Macy’s sale today!” He bounced excitedly and you gaped at him before pushing him off the bed.
He landed on the floor with a heavy ‘thud’.
“I’m going back to bed.”
“No, you’re not,” He grabbed your hand forcefully, causing you to grunt in pain as you fell on top of him.
You rolled your eyes as Isaac was sifting through the racks. You loved shopping with your boyfriend, you really do, just not this early. His eyes flickered to you every once in a while just to make sure you were close by, giving you a sweet smile or kiss in between.
You got up from the chair and headed over to him, deciding to at least enjoy yourself. “Hello ma'am, would you like any assistance?”
“Bite me!” He responded without turning around.
You laughed out loud at that before wrapping your arms around his waist from behind and kissing his back.
He hummed in content at the feeling before turning around in your embrace. “Does this go with my eyes?” A cheeky grin lighting up his handsome features as he held up a maroon scarf.
You giggled, pressing a kiss to his lips. “You make everything look good, the most stylish werewolf I’ve ever met.” You whisper the last part.
He narrows his eyes playfully at you. “Are you mocking me?”
You kissed his cheek. “Yes I am.”
“Come on, I’m done anyway.”
“My turn!” You clap your hands excitedly and he gives you a small smile before lifting you up and placing you in the cart.
“Let’s do it!” He exclaims with a laugh before he dashes you off to the women’s section.
My grandparents were a bus driver and hospital custodial staff administrator, a house painter and Macy’s sales associate. They all retired in or before their 60s, owned their houses, owned a vacation house and travelled. None had degrees. Two were veterans. The same jobs today, the same history, they would be in poverty, un-insurable, and working until they couldn’t any longer. Anyone that criticizes our and younger generations work ethic and lifestyle are the real entitled spoiled ones.
I HAD NOTHING TO SAY WHILE TRYING TO GRAPPLE WITH SOMETHING THAT SEEMED SO OBVIOUS, OBTUSE, REDUNDANT. THE IMAGES, TRINKETS OF OLD NEW YORK NAUSEATING TRADEMARKS OF A LATE HUMANISM WERE UBIQUITOUS—HYDROGEN BONDS OF “VISUAL CULTURE” … A DIZZYING YAWN
THEY CIRCULATED IN MEMORY PLANNED TO PUSH OUT CLIPART PAINTSTROKES OF THE RC COLA CAN, BUT FORGETTING THE NOSTALGIA OF A FAMILY BBQ.
THE IMAGES SHARE THE SAME BOLDLY DETERMINED FIGURATION CIRCULATED POP, QUOTIDIAN, COLLEGE POSTER
THEY WERE EVERYWHERE I DIDN’T WANT TO BE SHOPPING WITH MY MOTHER ON CLEARANCE RACKS IN SECOND-RATE SHOPPING MALLS, CLUTTERING 42ND ST MANHATTAN ONTRIPS FROM NEW JERSEY WITH MY FATHER TO SEE RENT AFTER ‘EXPLORING THE CITY’
IN BANNER ADS FOR WALL DECALS AND COFFEE MUGS CLUTTERING THE ONLINE MAGAZINES I WANTED TO READ IN A PEACE, AWAY FROM FACEBOOK’S POOR ATTEMPT AT UNDERSTANDING MY CONSUMER DESIRES.
LET THEM CIRCULATE IN REINCARNATION, DANCING ON SCREEN SAVERS.
TRAINS AND SIDEWALKS IN THE CITY PROVIDE A CERTAIN FREEDOM TO UNMEDIATED MOVEMENT TRAVEL ACROSS AND, IN AN ACT OF FREEDOM (NO CARS) AND RITUAL, IN THE NAME OF PHYSICAL UNBOUNDEDNESS, EVEN IF IN SPITE OF THE POLICING OF THE SAME,
RECOGNIZE THE LINES IN SUBWAY STATIONS HOLDING ON TO THEIR BRICK EMBANKMENTS WALKING BY FACE UP IN AIRPLANE MODE
INITIALLY, TESTAMENTS TO AN ERA WHERE THE CITY WAS ANIMATED BY THE CITIZEN-CREATED PUBLIC WORK ON PUBLIC SURFACES (UNCOMISSIONED). HOW BEAUTIFUL, A VIBRANT SPLASH OF COLORFUL OPTIMISM IN A CYNICAL AND CYNICALLY DESIGNED CITY
LINES AND BODIES, CONGENIALITY IMBUED IN THEIR COLORFUL MOVEMENT AND ALSO SOMETHING OTHER … SINISTER, SARDONIC, AND DYSTOPIC IN THEIR PREDILECTIONS
MIRAGES OF GREETING CARD SENTIMENTALITY GIVE WAY AND WITH IT THE BASTARDIZED OFFSPRING OF ART-AS-COMMERCE LEAVING BEHIND A VICTIM
REAL EYES IN A REAL CITY-IN-TRANSIT WHERE THE NOSTALGIC LAMENTS OF THE LIVING LEGENDS OF DOWN- AND UP- TOWN BOHEMIAS NEED LITTLE CITATION IN THEIR JADEDNESS
THE LOSS OF ZEITGEIST AS SUCH / NOTED, REFERENCED Id. INFINITUM, WITH PAPERWORK TO PROVE AND EXPANSIVE WINDOWS FOR SCALE, IN NEUTRAL TONED, CHEAP AND DERIVATE MODERNIST CONDOS
OVER-DISTRUBUTED OBJECTS OF CONSUMPTION SATURATING THE LIQUIDATED MARKETS OF FACTORY PRODUCED HOUSEHOLD ORNAMENTS SIMULTANEOUSLY SUPPORTING THE FOUNDATION’S ENTERPRISE AND TEACHING ME FUNDAMENTALS OF A VISUAL LANGUAGE CASTRATED OF ITS GRAMMATICAL STRUCTURE IN THIS FORM
FIGURES DELIVERED AS SYMBOLS OF A NEU HUMANISM
REPRODUCTIONS FLATTENED THE TEXTURES LEFT IN THE TRAILS OF BRUSH STROKES AND MERGED THE MOST BENEVOLENT SYMBOLS IN THIS LEXICON TO THE MOST IMMEDIATE “ON SALE” MONSTERS OF THE NEOLIBERAL ORDER.
AND ELSEWHERE OUTLINED FIGURES SNICKER IN HOSPITAL WALKWAYS DANCE ABOVE PUBLIC POOLS FUCK FREELY IN MENS BATHROOMS IN WEST VILLAGE BUILDINGS WHERE THE PLUMBING HAS SINCE BEEN RE-ROUTED REMIND EVERY EYE PASSING BY A CERTAIN ROADSIDE IN HARLEM OF THE VILLAINS (AND SAINTS) THAT POSSES THE CITY
CONTINUITY IN THE LINE(S) REMAINS UNBROKEN ALL THE MORE APPARENT IN THE LIMINAL ZONE OF A CITY WHERE THE MTA CONNECTS THE BORDER OF ONE MURAL AT THE STATION OF DEPARTURE TO THE FOLD OF A LEG ON MOUNTED FIGURE IN A PARK OUTSIDE THE STATION OF ARRIVAL.
IT HAS MADE ITS WAY ACROSS GENERATIONS OF BULBS-TURNED-PIXELATED CARTOGRAPHY IN ANIMATED SIGNAGE AND IT PROTESTS THE RACIST STATE SPONSORED BRUTALITY OF THE NYPD TRACING AND DISTORTING THE FIGURE OF MICHAEL STEWART FILLING THE FACELESS FIGURES WITH BROWN SKIN AND ARTICULATED FEATURES
RADIANT BABIES GROW INTO ECSTATIC FIGURES MANIPULATING AND PUNCTURING ONE ANOTHER A COITUS PATTERN ARTICULATED BY MOIST HIPS UNDULATING LIMBO SPREAD LED JUNGLES WHERE CYLINDRICAL FRUIT FALLS INTO HANDS MOUTHS IN VEINS EMERGES ON THE SURFACE OF SKIN TAUGHT, IN DENIAL
LINE, FIGURES IT GRANTS CERTAIN VITALITIES TO A REVELATORY POWER
THE NATURE OF THEIR WIDE AND RAPID PROLIFERATION COULD HAVE FORESEEN LEGACIES AS POOR IMAGES PROMPTING THE CONSUMER OF GIFT WRAP ON SALE AT MACYS TO GOOGLE WHO IN FACT WAS RESPONSIBLE SYMBOLS, DEPLETED KINECTIC AUDACITY A SUGGESTION/ MARKER INVITATION TO LINES, BODIES TRANSFORMATIONS OF EMBOD-IED ENERGIES IN ON A JOKE / COGNIZANT OF A MISSION HOMAGE TO THE CURRENT RECURRENT TENDER AGE
I feel like when Bostonanian pearl goes out to carnivals or arcades with Steven she make sure to wear a matching shirt with the yellow star or she wears a scarf that matches his shirt so he can pick her out of the crowd when/if he gets lost
THATS SO CUTE
but tbh he just has to yell into the crowd “THERES A SALE AT MACYS” and Pearl will come barreling through
have you ever seen that "shine bright" comic where a very prim and proper-looking lady is cursing and eating barbeque and generally being really crass and sloppy while a 1950s looking dude advertises laundry detergent? well, that lady, in my mind, is maxine in a nutshell. i see her as being this hybrid of feminine perfection and loud, obnoxious filthiness. and that's why frank loves her.
YES! I love that comic! And the gif underneath with Mother Fucker Macy’s Sale. God I love it. I also had a dream where Maxie has a pitbull, like a black and white one that’s perfectly behaved and trained to attack on command. Meanwhile Frank has a doberman who’s basically a goofy son of a bitch until Maxie’s pitbull shows up, then he gets his shit together so they can attack whomever together.
Maxie in a blouse and polka dot skirt, Frank dressed like a mobster from the 60′s and their dogs with diamond studded collars. Now that’s an image I like.
