A Poem About Miss America

“I’m always looking,” says Miss America, “for what’s NOT to like.”
Every time she looks in a mirror.
Miss America onstage, her blond hair coils and spirals, billows and looms,
to make her face look as small as possible.
One high-heeled foot, placed just a little in front of the other
to make her legs overlap
so her hips look more
Standing sideways, she twists her shoulders
to face the audience head-on.
All this breathless contortion to make her waist look
Onstage, instead of a spotlight, a movie fragment:
Her face veiled with exercise videos.
Her features, her eyes and lips, made up with hot-pink leotards and leg warmers.
Her Miss America skin jumps and dances with a crowd of women,
each of those women watching herself in a mirror.
The film: a shadow of a reflection of an image of an illusion.
She says, “My every glance in a mirror, it’s a secret market survey.”
She’s her own test audience.
Rating her curb appeal on a scale of one to ten.
Every day, beta-testing a new upgraded version of herself-point-five.
Fine-tuning to follow market trends.
Her dress, swimsuit-tight, leotard-tight,
her pantyhose run with women pedaling bicycles, going nowhere
at a thousand calories an hour.
“For the Talent portion of my program,” she says, “I’ll show you how to unswallow.”
A bellyful of peach ice cream,
a Halloween bag of miniature candy bars,
six frosted doughnuts,
two double cheeseburgers.
The usual stuff.
And sometimes, sperm.
Her face swimming and flickering with aerobic work, her immediate ambition is
to diminish initial buyer resistance.
With a long-term goal of becoming someone’s long-term investment.
As a durable consumer good.

Exerpted from Haunted by Chuck Palahniuk

Haunted is a 2005 novel by Chuck Palahniuk. The plot is a frame story for a series of 23 short stories, most preceded by a free verse poem. Each story is followed by a chapter of the main narrative, is told by a character in main narrative, and ties back into the main story in some way. I have decided to make a series of portraits of each of the 19 characters in this book. The title quote is the first line of each character's story and the description is each character's poem. The portraits are my personal interpretation to the words of the book.

My new Iron Gym

My new Iron Gym

I bought an Iron Gym on Tuesday. I've been wanting one for a few weeks. I waited until someone put it on sale. I bought it at Target for the regular price but got a free $10 gift card. That's the best deal around right now for this product.

I quickly put it together (4 minutes) and "installed" it. I stood holding it for several minutes before I let myself trust the device to hold me (supposedly holds 300 pounds, I weigh 185).

In just two days, I can now do a few full pullups in succession.

This is part of my New Year's Resolution to work out every day. That's really easy when you don't have a job! Also, people who ride bicycles every day still need to work out, because bicycling doesn't work out a hundred other muscles that want part of the workout.

P.S. The only suitable door in my whole apartment is the bathroom door. My bedroom door is arched. So is the door to the living room. My roommate's bedroom door is French. Whatever works.
