A very witty poem, Skat. You have a biting sense of humor. Ouch. This is an unusual poetic form. A minimalist approach is challenging I bet. I liked this one though. Love to you.

Hello Skat. Ya! There are some selfish people who do that kind of stuff. But there are also good people like you. Very nicely written. All the best.

This is wonderful. It's at least a double-entendre, and I think I have three interpretations.

Do we ever really "buy" sex?....is it ever really "ours"? Perhaps a thing that's "borrowed"...or "loaned" or "leased" when scarred? Nice write S A.....Peter

One way to cut through all that is to picture the 'Subject' with no make up on at all in the harsh light of day and Bald. All they have left to offer is their true self. Their previous image was an illusion. However, I too wonder why TV Soap Operas like 'Coronation Street' are so addictive to the masses. Maybe it's the sexy Ad breaks that bridge them, eh?

Sooooo sweet, SKAT!! This single line has maaany meanings!! However, it depends on how an individual interprets it. To me, one of its meanings is that this line mourns the evil practice of human trafficking for sex!! Really a Great line!!

I know sex sells, but I won't buy it....we can both put money on the table, then try it....winner take all, I won't pay her to please her....and I refuse to lose, I am no teaser....;)

In one way or another we all buy it. We are hard wired with a yearning, we want it and we want to be wanted. What we buy is sometimes in hopes of attracting people to us and yes there are those who use sex to gain power as well. You have created a great dialogue with just a few words. Bravo!
