Try smile

Published at Lotus-eater 1

Lie flat on the grass,
face up to the camera,
try wistful, playful, mock abused,
like, like, like,
arch your back
in your scant yellow top
so we get your chin, neck, chest,
try surprised, palm your cheeks,
like, like, like,
try smile, try kiss, try coy,
try the one when you tilt
your daisy-chained head
to gaze into a promising future,
hold it, hold it, hold it,
and release.
