Magpies, Guaranteed No Poem

Not to be Reproduced, 1937 
by the Belgian surrealist René Magritte



"Nice to see you’re back"

or

Twitter Fiction:
140 characters or fewer:

"Face me, you scoundrel.
I sacrificed the best years of my life for you.
If you think you can turn your back on me you have another think coming."

  2. Your sense of humor is unparalleled.

  4. You succeeded in making me laugh. Twice. Or perhaps one was just a backward reflection of the other.

  6. Ah dear Magritte! His fountain rests at Philadelphia's Museum of Art, my childhood temple. Brueghel, now this fellow. You are a one woman "educate the masses" campaign! No wonder your thoughts are so rich and resonant!

  8. Hahaha! Love the twitter novel thing - did you know Penguin (I think) produced a book a few years ago with all the classics 'translated' into Tweets? It's hilarious!!

  11. Twitter Fiction? What a great idea - that sounds so much more 2013 than the Flash Fiction label! lol

  15. Dear Friko, I'd so enjoy hearing Derek Jacobi or another British actor declaim those words!!! Peace.

  23. Friko, before I get to Magritte, I want to applaud lovely Cait for her poetry, and for her suggesting a meme that could allow a talented writer like you to respond.

    Now...in this post you are showing your playful side. Or sides. Take a bow, or could we even convince you to come back for an encore?

    It's fun to think of our other senses's ways of doing what a mirror can do. Reverb or echo or refrain for hearing, touch might be easy, what do you think about the others?

    How I do enjoy visiting here! xo

  24. Short and ever so Friko, sweet! I can feel the power in those few words!

  25. Very clever words! Thank you, I had a good laugh.

  26. Lol, strange picture....
    Happy Easter, Frico!
