She wanders in
when she feels like it,
tarted up, sometimes,
as if every eye in the place awaited her arrival,
in naked abandon,
flourishing syllabic resonance wherever
wanton desire cherishes her arrival,
poses idly, at times, to capture flash,
smiling, leerily, on red carpet.
Departing with a sneer, she’s

embittered exchanged coin of nothing.
feasting on flesh that waits
for her arrival
while life demarks
