Like horseflesh, a filly stabled by billboards 
flares thin nostrils. Her mane deceives, looks
untamed, a lie for she has been subjected to

six hours of grooming, polished and primped,
false-lashed and pimped into six inch stilettos 
to model a shell-pink lace thong. Oh, delicate 

hook of youth posturing as a whore. And all the 
while a predator salivates, imagines this nubile 
girl gyrating for him alone, adoring and servile.

She is just fifteen, keeps a bear on her bed,
makes pompoms, collects green sea glass, eats
Cocoa Puffs and devours Teen Magazines.

Last week a stranger called her Mona Lisa. 
Eyes wide, she replied, but my name is Mara. 
He licked his lips, promised to take her to Paris, 

teach her all she should know, mentioned 
ambrosia, spanning stars, but his grin,
his awful, wet grin, blazed a branding.
