Prayers, Portraits, Post-Its (24)


So many creeps and hustlers
had used her
she was ready for his
good, dull arms.

Dependable as waxed
paper he would
wrap her from the world.

(And eat her
in silent chews, of course,
while his mild
attention strayed elsewhere.

That was the part
she never
got or believed.)
