Notes: Ars(e) Poetica #13 :: March 3, 1998. I don’t even know what to say about this… It’s not about one person, it’s about an entire chain, one after another… they never saw that they were worth anything more than flesh paid.


She lays upon her back, legs open wide
And stretches her arms up above her head
To every single one of them she lied
And told them they were first to share her bed

Her life is like a cancer in her dreams
Her litany is "Look how well it pays"
I hear when in her sleep she voices screams
And when she goes to bed, I know she prays

Sometimes I wonder if it’s all she’s known
A bleak existence spent upon her back
In her past what rancid seeds were sown
To put her on so execrable a track

With breaking dawn I leave her tawdry room
And dream of ways to save her fragile bloom
