Everyone wants to be a super model
Orchestrated poses, scarves in the wind
standing in dangerous places so the wind blows our hair
just so
Retakes and retakes and retakes by husbands
and boyfriends also trying to hold our purse
Filters and photoshop for contrast
and saturation
and the elimination

of everything

we wish we didn’t see

Trying to recreate beauty.
Trying to be beauty.
In a photograph.

But what if we tried to recreate…
What if we tried to be…
Something else.
In a photograph?

How would you pose
For a beautiful heart

For the appearance
Of kindness
Of patience
Of wisdom

I want to

for that

thoughts go here... be nice... be thankful...
