A Whore House

(a whore house)

morals & corsets loosen,
dark alleyways, velvet rooms
plush with temptation &

—money tinted skin

diamond cut teeth
feed on, bitter-chocolate
covered cockroaches

—the best they’re going to get.

Love is an aphrodisiac:
air sticky sweat,
sex, & syllables

—smother,

a contagious virus,
begging to be fit inside
the empty holes

—of a body.

nails hammer across
spines. Tongues, tools to
lie with. Lips

—soft vices,

holding broken vows
to love & hold
only one soul

—at a time.
