Post 91: Rough Draft, Portrait of a Young Model

LIFE DRAWING arms around herself

To draw the model
beyond  glitz
and bawdy lies
there is a world
not in disguise.

It’s sophisticated
never demeaning or rude.
Everyone knows
artists draw the nude.

We paint and sketch,
a covey of characters and friends
lost in our thoughts,
the 20-something model twists and bends.

The curves at her elbow
the softness of her limbs,
I hope I can get this gesture right
before the light dims.

To live beyond the fakery
to create more than a façade
imaginative art and poetry
is how artists deal with the odd.
