AN ODE TO IRIS.
Iris Apfel, you’re like a ride at the fair,
With your twit-twoo glasses and your bonkersville-wear,
Shrieking “more is more, and less is a bore!”
How could we resist your maximalist lore?
A multi-hued elder with a shock of white hair
Like an owl in a dress, such style, such flair,
Life is for living, you’ll give it what for
With a winky wisdom we adore to the core.
AN ODE TO IRIS was an expression of crazy cool Apfel-love by Woo Woo editor Virginia Rowe. Watch this brilliant little snapshot of Iris Apfel’s life, by Avant Garde Diaries:
