Body Casting

Body Casting Standing there naked for all to stare Or is it a pleasure to share The days when before Your body took a different shape and more. A way of remembering the time When pregnancy was progressing just fine And your body changed as was due For nine months pregnancy was ending for sure. Weight distribution fore and aft Bulges here and there are in the cast For weight gain was taking place As within the skin there was a race. A race to fill the voids and cause expansion When the skeleton would allow expression Of the new growing within and about That was soon to be without. Those who have had their body cast Made with strips of adhesive and plaster Ensuring that a form would be saved That some would consider depraved. The cast can be used as decorative bowls For it reproduces the body as it molds. Sand them and paint them if you like Art work that is unique to the mother’s tike Hang them on the wall to exclaim Look at me in my nine-month’s frame (fame). Put baby blankets in the cavity A place for cats to snuggle infamy Or baby toys and stuffed animals there placed Whatever, moves you to view the displaced. But understand each is unique as they stand A testimony to the delight of man (woman). ** Ancient Paths in Coeur D’Alene, Idaho makes plaster cast of a women’s bulging belly at nine months to remember the shape that nature takes during pregnancy.
