Molten Muse

Setting: Dingy, downtown Manhattan art studio a couple of blocks from Central Park
Date: Unknown, springtime

Girl à la Ferrero Rocher-painted
Opportunistic self-marketing,
Linked memory to certain 007 film
Dappled in the sunlight
Full-on dramatic cliché
Indifferent, accepting expression
New-found bodily liberation
Gilded, girt, engorged, enveloped
Empowered or disempowered?
Renovated, reconditioned, remodelled
