the intimacy of shame 

by hotel bathroom candlelight, she helps 
you into a slip of white purchased for 
a different kind of sacrifice.  no belts 
tonight or lewd advice, pubic hair or 
pigtailed disguise to make this easier 
at all.  they do not even allow you 
any alcohol while at the dinner 
where they contemplate you over steak. new 
girls feel best when they shake a little,
nervous skin she will open up for him.
while you whimper from the gentle 
touch. never knew you’d feel this small again,
a college girl grown comfortable with pain
they teach the intimacy of shame.
