Work for Hire

The Maenad


CW Sex work


Don’t call me baby

If you’ve no support to offer me

I don’t get to go home

Someplace clean when we’re done with this scene

Go back to Marysville, or maybe Mercer Island

Someplace suburban that hides it’s violence

When Goddess goes home I cast aside such lies as

the essential rationality of pleasing forms or

Their reductionism to raw numbers,

Venture capital from seduction.
