The Harlot 2

While all night queens carve figurines in gelatine and jade, Behind a door and on the floor a deal is finally made; A painted girl with flaxen curl has plied again her trade And now the care within her stare has turned a darker shade. Her lack of guile and parting smile are cutting like a blade.

    Lack of guile says much more than is writen.

    You gingerly handled what some might consider taboo. To recognize and write about reality is indeed the mark of a master poet... Great write!!...... Jake

    Why I like poetrysoup is that-- people dealing around are great writers who could sense all way round to draw a clear picture of what is happening around us.... With a vivid imagery and descriptions that say it all.
