Haiku Friday: Best Posters

Even though the text got a little bolixed up in transition to digital format, I really loved this poster that the UCLA folks made for my visit, showing a background of prison complexes.  Not the feel-good poster of the summer, but still.

One of my favorite lines in music is about posters:

"Everything you learned
Came from a poster of a cat."

I know what poster they were talking about, too-- the one where the cat is hanging from a tree, and it says "hang in there!"

Let's haiku about posters today... we all have a favorite.  Here is mine:

Baylor Football pic
2003; doomed team!

Now you go!  5/7/5...

Okay, after two failed attempts, here it is:

Oh Farrah Fawcett,
Wearing red, one-piece swim suit,
Blond hair and white teeth.

Back in the sixties
Academic posters were
hand calligrahied.

Stashed in the basement
Dr. Benjamin Lewis
Speaks 'round the world.
there should be a P in calligraphied.

The great Jim Marshall
Shot the great Miles Davis
He was always cool:
The Matisse flowers
countered Dali dripping clocks
Roommate art conflicts
