'Mad Men' coming attractions poetry: The episode 704 'The Monolith' teaser in verse
The seemingly random bits of dialogue strung together brings to mind the refrigerator-magnet poetry that half your friends had in the '90s. With that in mind, Zap2it will offer up a poetic interpretation of each week's coming attractions. (Previous selections are here and here.)
This week's selection is "The Monolith," after the title of next week's (May 4) episode. Featuring both a "What?" and a "Close the door," it's maybe the Platonic ideal of "Mad Men" teasers.
