Max makes a personal appearance!


Hold the presses... Here is Max the Poet Laureate making a deal with his agent. One of his poems has been optioned for Hollywood. Go Max!!

(Thanks Sr. Rose & Max's mommy!)

Which one will it be? I think the Fish poem has more of a dramatic arc. I see the fish from Big Fish doing a reprise performance, with Ewan McGregor as a grown-up Max. On the other hand, Max himself running wild through a kaleidoscope of talking flowers could work too. Done in the manner of Waking Life & A Scanner Darkly -- I can see it!

MY FISH
My fish talks
My fish is a monster
My fish has lasers


THE FLOWERS
Flowers talk
Flowers feel soft
Flowers smell like the rubber on the balloon
