As Posed

So who’s up next? Don’t keep us waiting.
Show us what you’ve got.
Turn around, let’s see the back…
or then again, let’s not.

Is this your first time doing this?
What do you think to hide?
Our worst ones try to show it all,
the best know to keep it inside.

Pretending you’re our lover, show us
something only you.
Not what you think you want to be,
but what you’ll let us do.

Try lying back. Show us a smile.
Let’s leave nothing unspread.
No, never mind. We’re going nowhere —
you might pose better dead.

You’ve nothing we’ve not seen before.
Go, put back on your clothes.
If you could only see yourself,
you wouldn’t dare to pose.
