Magpie Tales Photo Prompt 101: An Artist's Pose

From Boris Hoppek's Tokyo exhibit "Ever"


artiste


no one cares
why the sun rises 
above your 
consort bed. 

all that matters 
is you -  
the artist's muse, 
fringed in comfort, 
listening for a 
lover's footsteps 
fading distant early 
morn; 

you - 
posed languid 
for this never-ending
sculpted ruse 
of night.
