Flash Fiction Fridays, #11

5 words picked by a random word generator, 100 words or fewer story.  We have:  navel, trophy, conductor, mime, finger. Please send in one of your own, due by midnight, Monday, New York time. Winner gets a critique of the first chapter of their WIP or poem.

     “Give the mime the finger. Speak his language.”
     “Act this out, buddy.” A stubby finger sailed into the air.
     “Damn street performers. Everybody’s an artist nowadays. Junkies with busted two-string guitars are conductors, any kid with a crayon’s Picasso.”
     “I know. What’s in the bag?”
     “That’s my trophy for best navel in a pose-off. I won best spray-tan lines too.”
     “Sweet. I won best use of makeup to hide juice tracks.”
     “Wanna go lift?”
     “Sure. Let’s bench some writer clowns too. What a piece of work.”
     “Is a man...hey, move it, Shakespeare. Real artists coming through.”
