936 words - 4 pages

I spy with my eager eyes a lounging woman across the sky. Without clothes or a silhouette, the picture is foggy. The form is subtle creating a vignette. The woman I dream of, love and desire doesn't even know how she lights my fire.Who am I? "Peeping Tom," my subconscious states. I have nothing to do but sit at my window and gaze. And the woman? Someone. Without a name or face. Pablo Picasso likes to call her Female Nude.I reside in a high-rise apartment building. Female Nude lives in the complex opposite mine.

He was a voyeur painting for voyeurs. He gave them a God's eye view of reality. He was able to show every three dimensional aspect of the whole subject in a single dimension.

I envision a man looking...
