Sketches – 25

Posing, or pre-posing…

Ok, give me just a second

I already took the picture

What? I wasn’t ready!

It looks great though –
Professional quality

It looks stupid.
I’m fixing my hair

Photographers are always looking
For life as it really is

Yes, well
Your wife as she really is
Wants a do-over

Fine, but
I’m keeping this one

Of course you are –
With that weird texture behind me
It looks like maybe I have bees in my hair —

Five years from now
We will be telling everyone
About that time you had
Bees in your hair

People will believe us,
I’d bet

Why?

Hive mentality
