Sendak (blogophilia 11.5)


Max sleeps now
Ashes morphing into starlight
Judith watches
Transitioning
With St Ex’s Prince
Dancing amongst the lights
Laughing at Roses and thorns

Commander K nuzzles Marvin’s knee
Welcoming their guests.
Asking how they fooled
The Space Cop.
A picture of
Max eaten by the Snake
And the Cop running away.
Everyone laughs at the ruse.
Then turn
Smiling at the Earth.

    1. Max is the main character of "Where the Wild Things Are." He has now joined The Little Prince in the stars.

  5. If you have ever had kids or dealt with kids, you have read "Where the Wild Things Are." Children are smarter than we think and can understand more than we give them.
