icy winds bear down upon

the harlot

playing in her sandbox

she draws the face of men

who take her life

every breath is lust restored

blood drips from every hole

yet she is told it is natural


how dare she question the hierarchy

bowing before the beatings

from whips and scourges

the streets know the outlines

of her feet

and brake lights imprint

on a pale face

when they stop she puts on a show

hoping they will see her beauty

and freedom

she might know

sleep with me she begs

not to fulfill her desire

but theirs

an unspoken sisterhood

dedicated to one another

the moon flavors

unsavory nights

full of lust and lies

pitiable fight

from the heart of this woman

stronger than any soldier

wiser than any sage

to buy back her freedom

without equal pay

bright girl stand tall

eyes brightening with the rising sun

feet standing firm

face set towards the horizons

and heart brimming

with unconscious power

your time

is done
