Painted Woman


papercut   SHARE THIS ARTICLE

after Cecily Brown

Paint her in, seal the edges of her
bare body, drop paint on her, like
a sinker on a fishing line drowns

the hook. Make sure she can’t
breathe, can barely turn to look at
you, her Master. I would rather

a woman paint another naked:
waves of high pink, choppy as
an ocean, push the frame’s eddies.

The subject spread across the canvas.
The geography of acute sensations
a nude is when her skin is touched.
