#12. shall I . . amuse you?

In my bolder moments . . .
sometimes . . .
I would
oh! to be an artist’s model
his muse
of beauty and inspiration.
you desire to capture me
on canvas?
well . . . . .
reverently disrobe me in the soft light
guide me
alight me onto the divan
come pose me
place my fingers on my hand
stand back
silently observe and adore me
enjoy my beauty and lovingly exhort me
deeply exhale and measure me
with hungry eyes sample and treasure me
drape me in transluscent scarves
a touch of moisture on my lower lip
a highlight shine upon my hip.
yes it is slightly chilled in here
I see your nipples have noticed my dear . . . .
Now I wonder should we try a different pose
what would it look like if you bent and touched your toes?
oh two marvelous handfuls!
clap clap
pay no attention to the part that just arose . . .
but after excitely watching you draw and erase me
I suddenly moved naked to the canvas
to see what would face me. . . .
Surprise Surprise!
no escape
wide eyed
as I look now at a canvas blank
with scribbles and notes
and a cartoon of a shark in a tank
. . . .?

Well I don’t actually know how to draw yet
but I really really sincerely want to learn . . .

    Punched and then invalidated. This is so cool, and yes the end is “surprise”. There is a poem about “Picasso’s Model” where she peaks at what this short bald spanish man is painting and makes the mistake of laughing. I’ll try and find it later. But it’s not as good as yours.

  • oh love to see that one!! To cross the man with the ego . . . woo! thin ice.
    Thank for reading and the great comment, always educational. No doubt many a story told about these encounters. this one fictional of course.
    If I were to finish the conversation it would go something like this:
    oh you are a drawing instructor?? what luck!! Teach me how to draw really quick.
