still life

naked
I stand naked
in front of you
naked
I’m stripped
undressed
each thread
bare to my skin;

naked
I stand naked
for you to invite
naked
your eyes
I’m draped
each limb
on overlaid folds;

naked
I lay naked
hollows and curves
inscribed
recognised
of truth
and lines
the seeing unseen;

naked
I lay naked
just how you want
nameless
I’m seamless
slow hand
etching
impression refined;

start to flow:
I move
I’m naked
you remain clothed
I move
I’m naked
your body knows
I move
I’m naked
your brush strokes
I move
I’m naked
your gradual shades
I move
I’m naked
charcoal and ink
I move
I’m naked
I’m hiding within
I move
I’m naked
capturing sin
I move
I’m naked
trace the flow.

naked
I stand naked
shedding a modesty
framing
an innocence
claiming
the distance
so carefully tamed;

thoughts
imaginings
wondering
what you’ll be
wondering
inferring
discerning
what you’re
discerning.

naked
I stand naked
for you.

still life
