Five Bucks

five bucks

Five bucks for five minutes of fun

Fast and slick

Shiny and unchaste

Sleepless nights

Drowning in her pool of self-inflicted vacuity

A once undervalued little girl

Trappings of generational ruin

Carrying clandestine vacancy in her adult heart

Flickering illumination

Shadowed by ornamentation

If only she knew

She is worth more

She is not

Five bucks

For five minutes of fun

Misery

misery

Misery

Her face, grotesque melting wax in the sun, lifeless

Murdering kindness between her hollow bones until it drips darkness, lifeless

Eye sockets stuffed with dull pieces of coal, lifeless

Fateful inky coarse hair frames her scowl unto all thing beautiful, lifeless

Spitting out words of abuse like splintered rotten teeth, lifeless

A sticky noxious black tar oozes from her soul poisoning waters of purity, lifeless

Walking her malignant path of faultless disease, lifeless

Ask her why

She will look at you with dead eyes and in her silence show you

She is lifeless

Misery

~Alisa Hutton
