The Female Man Wrapped in Leopard Skin
The skin is an envelope.
The selfie is a stamp.
The self is the letter we send To whom it may concern. Therefore:
Rest your weight.
Support yourself by placing and maintaining, A constantly flexed position.
To firm and trim, to tone and smooth,
To shape and sculpt,
To modify and to transform.
“Will the change”!
Following Rilke’s injunction.
“Want the change”,
as some of his translators would prefer the phrase: “The artist when sketching, loves nothing so much as the curve of the body, as it turns away”
