Harlot – Poem by Anita McQueen


Anita McQueen – Harlot

She plods pickles
until they lay straight

they can’t help themselves
as she extends them a-

tasting a twinge
her future rot

apartment of mirrors
suffocating walls

a sun roof
taped over in black

her clothes
just a fluttering cape

she hoovers over their beds
as they squirt
up with pride

their milk
drying in the morning
scabs over her scars

she told me this
as I walked her home
