|Le Nu Couronne, Marc Chagall, 1984.|
surrender your inhibitions
to the visionary with the brush or lens,
no need for blushing here—
there is no lascivious thought
over your erogenous zones;
no lusting for vulvas and roseolas
in all their splendid lividity.
Unveil, as thousands have before
(and will again).
Bask in this new liberty.
Your skin, your eyes, your hair—
all of you may be skewed when it is complete,
but you, you will be released.
You are the masterpiece!
