Christina Shideler: Dat Ass Tho

Shakin it like two flour sacks,
like two massage motors
in a Sharper Image chair

like a pair of water balloons
bursting in slow motion
workin that jelly, that tapioca,

that pancake batter,
shakin dat thing like
alternative energy

like dat ass was gonna
power a pickup, a coupe or sedan,
like you were tryin to sell

high interest credit cards,
or an aspirational lifestyle product,
like ass shakin was art

if put in the right context,
curators and readers agreeing
high art meets low art meets

damn, look at dat ass.
