Notes to this poem…
This was pretty much as the haiku text stated. I was posing nude for life drawings, at a limited space retreat where everybody drew but also took turn modeling. Reduced the need for more people without models, while allowing for a wide variety of models, like a different one at each session, given all the different types and body types of people there.
I used naked rather than nude, which is the classy way of describing such posing, for, both, humorous effect and to fulfill the syllabic requirements of the haiku. 🙂
The N-series poems were composed while I posed nude for life drawing, being very still with excess mental capacity I must force myself to occupy with appropriate thoughts so nothing awkward would happen. 🙂
