Self-portrait, 2007

That place
at the nape
of your neck
where the skin
meets your
rust-colored hair
that’s where
i want to
press my lips
inhale your scent
let you feel my breath

right there

it’s like
a sign
written on the flesh
“Start Here”

    Alrighty then. You nailed this one on every level possible. And if the model is you, I am enraptured. :-)

  • Well, thank you kindly. I generally am my own model. Cheaper, and less complaining :).

  • Pillage? How? What? Huh?
    Are you going to copy my photo with your hairy back in lieu of mine?

    Very sensual part of the body in Japan: Nape of the neck.

  • Japan and anywhere else for that matter :). But yes – which is why the Geisha left that part bare in the stylized white makeup they used…that was considered the height of eroticism to have that bit of flesh bare.
