naked

She came first
but she
doesn’t want me
to post her first name
just the inital
G

everybody else
is okay with first names

but for her
posting her first name
on the Internet
is like
stealing her shoes
and putting her
in a store window
without them

some people
who live naked
in the rainforest
similarly
won’t let you
capture their souls
in your camera

but you can still
see them
in National Geographic
