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.
