10 Dec



There are those

whose bodies

become common currency

displayed for anyone

and everyone.

Online digital galleries

of themselves.


I am drawn

to the shy girl

who dances

only for me,

her coinage

newly minted.

    Right when I say I’m taking a small break from the digital world, you write another outstanding piece.

    shy…I should think that would be too boring past age 18.

      Laughing. Don’t say that! There must surely be interesting shy women who aren’t in their teens.

    Most of her dances would be for him only, no matter her age. If loyalty makes her shy, so be it.

    Perfect. Only one can be selective without being shy 😉
