Lolita [Poem] by Katie Lewington

130582_12big

a rash
begins under the denim of her skirt –
twirls around the flesh of her thigh –
just shy of her white cotton knickers

the doctor examines this with no particular interest
with his hand

heat
he spoke
diagnosed
a heat rash

heat
she flushes
oh heat
yes
