I was out to meet my friend who lived nearby when I found this ravaged mannequin head. Her exquisite hazel eyes and pencilled brows, lifted towards the sky as if mannequin heaven was there. 

In reality her mutilated head lies in the tall grass. A used beer bottle leans against her face, an empty red cigarette package nearby. 

If she was alive I think she’d be wondering how she ended up here? Why she wasn’t the modelesque mannequin in the window display for Holt Renfrew or at least for H&M. Who had tossed her out like refuse and left her to this fate?

    1. That’s very interesting how we put human qualities into something which isn’t human but looks it. I think we personify a lot of things which aren’t human, things that look like us in particular.


  1. I just saw you are a fellow Canadian!
    I liked this one. Did you ever see the old movie with Olivia Newton John “A Mom For Christmas”? It’s about a mannequin that comes to life…

    1. Hi Dale, yes I’m from Alberta. 🍁 I did see that one a while back. I was actually thinking of a children’s show “Today’s Special” which was about a mannequin coming to life at night. It was on when I was in primary school. Thanks for your comment 🙂
