Do people normally pose nude
In guerrilla art workshops?
I asked myself this after I walked into
A room and saw a man standing with his
Bare bottom facing the small audience:
The last thing I expected or wanted to see.
He was waving a small Philippine flag
With his right hand and his left hand
Was pressed against his spine
As if his heart was found there
And not inside his chest.
I scanned the room for the friend
Who invited me to this curious event
But she was nowhere to be found.
The National Anthem kept on playing
In the background and the man kept on
Standing there in attention.
If his exhibitionism is art, then
What statement is he making?
If his aim is merely provocation
Then his success is not great
For the onlookers were yawning.
