her lens speaks

she chose to let the lens

compose her body’s language

shutter speeds becoming

participles dangling

like the buttons at the center of her areolae

the tapered thighs

the calves she once thought too small

it all speaks

perhaps any shame she felt at first

lost the debate against inner beauty

in any event

the lens speaks for her body

and someone may be lucky enough

to learn all the words.
