Black corset, a G-string and indigo lighting
those red stilettos blaze
like neon in slick city
sculpted terra firma
beguiles and benumbs
the wild and the innocent
Photoshopped she emerges
undulating like a messianic ad ditty
in still frame
lithe, toned, oiled
pushed-up voluptuous
and knocks his stream
of priapic consciousness
Stranger, who are you? Where are you from?

An aspiring fashion model
ensnared by the streets of max city
paved with gold and grime
inspired by an adult film star
she seeks her place
under the hazy Bollywoodian sun
a glamour or an art project
a minor film set in Goa
your salt and pepper look
fire her passion to shine
no place for commonplace
in this exacting world Stranger, who are you? Where are you from?

It’s her body, her projection
she shoots with abandon
and toys with encounters
to lift her spirits and calling
they have conversations
juicy, mouldy, clammy chats
and no coffee
chasing the edge
unless it’s offbeat she won’t
occupy the dark lodge
blade runner, spinner of impossible tales
temptress, mirage, thought bubble
a meandering pariah searching for her self
Stranger, who are you? Where are you from?

Show me the booty, baby.
