Booty Pics Requests (a poem)

Ebony Girl at Orlando's The Patio

My first decade as a nightlife photographer?
Had to beg women to pose for booty pics.

Things done changed.

“I want my booty in the picture.”

How the hell do they know to ask me for a booty pic?
Don’t know a damned thing about me.
Never even met me before.
Not even friends on social media.
Yet, know to ask me for a booty pic.

Is this because I’m black?
Racial profiling?
Is this because they believe all black men appreciate the booty?

Everybody wants their booty in the picture.
Women of all races do.

“Make sure you include my ass.”

That was the Puerto Rican woman.

Many black women usually do a booty pose without even requesting a booty pic.
White women do the same thing…especially when they’re drunk.

Everybody wants their booty in the picture.
Ain’t this some shit?

Still, I ain’t complaining.

Pic and poem from the book Three Orlando Nightspots.
