Traci as the Blue Nude

We went to the BMA to see The Cone Collection, but Blue Nude (1907) wasn't there. 

Matisse's Blue Nude Model Looks in the Mirror

He made my scars
look like accidental flicks of his palette knife.

Mismatched nipples
are swirls he pinkied on. They still look wet.

He didn't veil
my scoliotic hips but stretched them out.

My map of veins
is gone, but he left the tint all over my skin.
