fair trade

eight fifty-nine: i would prostrate myself
upon the cold cement, skirt yanked high,
shirt twisted, mouth pushed out like a whore
as a billboard for begging,
pleading prostitute
or senseless supplicant

i would proffer my pride
and swallow my dignity with a slap of lime
if it meant you’d come home to me now
