NaPo Day 3


Remember “Raising Arizona”?
Infertile couple,
a convenience store
robber and a cop,
kidnap one
of the “Arizona Quints”
and raise the baby
in their desert trailer.
Daddy’s bounty
hunter finds them, and they
blow him up.
You want to know
my interpretation
of the Coen Brothers movie?
The couple, Nicholas
Cage and Holly
Hunter, are European
colonialists, white

is the Injuns,
and Junior is the land.

is all very fine.
When Cage & Hunter
return the kid
in the end, it makes no
Remember the reviews?
Technically brilliant.
Incoherent story.
