Brothel Babies on Repeat… by Paul Tristram

She’s surfin’ that dusty mirror once again,
underwear on inside-out
for the second day running
(They’re never on for long anyway!)
‘Sweetheart’ in big Fuck Off letters
tattooed around her self-harmed throat
and ‘Pay First, Sucker!’
under a pink skull & crossbones
upon the left of her Brazilian mound.
She gulps away another childhood memory
of horse riding on that farm back home
in that now psychological foreign land
with a mouthful of warm, flat Special Brew.
Punter 13 is knocking frantically at the door
(Ooooh, that’s her lucky number, usually!)
He’s sweaty, scabby, smelly & mean
but still she licks & sucks
his pathetic cock like it’s an ice-cream cone,
woodpeckering his puckered arsehole
with a viciously thrumming digit.
Punter 19 wants a ‘Shitter’
which breaks up the monotony slightly.
He comes bearing gifts,
a crack rock & spicy Indian curry first,
watches as she wallops both down,
then lays crying naked as she squats
bored over his chest and lets her arse explode.
Outside in the evening skies
owls are hunting voles and shrews,
blissfully unaware of the barbarism
going on inside the walls of this building.
Punter 22 is an easy one to finish her shift,
he cums every night, literally,
watching her lick cherries & whipped cream
from around the edge of the toilet bowl.
The next ‘Knocks’ are the Pimp & Dealer
who help her glass-pipe the days money away.
Then Prince Heroin for sleep & comfort,
unfocusing from ‘Memories’ and the Pain.
