Model On A Pillow (Magpie Tales)
He strapped her to a bale of cotton,
and turned her in circles for the camera,
like an automobile under the lights.
He airbrushed the tendons out of her hands
the clench out of her teeth
and the stretch marks out of her thighs,
like an artist smoothing the parchment
hung on the wall for affect.
When Tess Kincaid of Magpie Tales offered this image for inspiration this week, for some reason, I thought of the Detroit Auto Show and all the models coiffed and collared.
