Foreign Models Wanted - Poem by Patti Masterman

Women draped across beds
with Pavlovian puppy eyes
limbs every which way, perhaps a fray
without a starting lie

Whispers across the ceiling
between flicks of a camera's spittle
no men admitted, we must not have
seduction, at acquittal

Foreign models wanted
for barely there filigree
bikini gloss, in a ring toss
bend-overs entirely free

Later men in bathrooms linger
too long over sticky pages
trying to fit the woman back in
to the anorexic aegis
