Monday Memorabilia/Collections: Aerosmith backstage signage

Or rather: alleged Aerosmith backstage signage. I got this almost 8 years ago off of eBay for $20 and the claim was that it was a sign that Aerosmith used to stick up at the entrance to their backstage area. It came in one of those plastic sheet protector...

Poem: Slingbacks

strappy polka dot stilettos the better to walk all over with no time for argument hateful glares from old hags —no matter the age— in their ugly dirty sneakers and clumsy orthopedic shoes wistful glances from husbands remembering when their wives still wore heels still cared to turn them...

Zone 2, ball-smacking, and reblooms
