I expected brown envelope on table, lipstick rims, black lace tangled in Egyptian cotton, Rolex ticking down our time together. Pretty Woman playing at independence until the limo parks. It surprises me, how little they look at me. Moved around bed, like a busy schedule. They don’t need me to be in my body, just need the body. The body they can fold and bend round themselves to feel safe in. For as long as they can afford. He would rather give his money than his attention. I can’t feed myself my caring. Can’t pay bills by giving a shit. So he fills me with cock and I tell him it feels good.

Every Wednesday
