the ‘Think Position’


I have had a good think about this.

What is the best position to have a good think?

My first thought was of Rodin’s sculpture,

You know the one, the naked male figure hunched

over in deep thought usually displayed in public.

Nude thinking in public especially on a cold stone pedestal

does not appeal to me. Does it to you? Apart from the fact

It would lead you in hot water with the law, possibly

Not a bad thing if you were out there naked on a cold day.

There must be a better, more private way, I thought.

My favourite ‘think position’ is to throw myself on the bed,

head on the pillow, close my eyes and let my brain take over.

I am looking for some modern day Rodin to sculpt me

in this position, preferably not nude, and immortalize me

in public, a possible title being ‘The Prone Thinker’.
