Cracked

Sears Big Book
back-to-school,
eyeing short shorts,
mother of all bikinis,
Coppertone tans--
Noting
hippybottoms & thick ankles
makes me look the way I feel,
gauzy wing-sleeved blouse
doubling
as diversion--
Averting eyes
I fly
out

Izy asked the Real Toads to write a poem containing a favorite line from a movie. The line “Makes me look the way I feel” is spoken by Fran Kubelik (played by Shirley MacLaine) to C.C. Baxter (Jack Lemmon) in The Apartment.
