The Painted Porcelain Whore (standard:poetry, 87 words)
Author: kendall thomas Added: Jan 10 2007Views/Reads: 1625/0Story vote: 0.00 (0 votes)
Saints and sinners seek illusions.

as false as gold 

a fool holds in his hand 

love for hire from 

tired illusion's stand 


thoughts behind 

a painted face 

have no place 

on the boulevard of dreams 


a scarlet skirt above 

black-silked thighs 

whispers lies 

paradise for a sum 

or denied 


one does not readily perceive 

nor want to --- 

as a child 

thumbing through 

comic books 

wants nothing more 


give him then the painted porcelain whore 

who while false to promise 

gives nothing less 

than what the saints adore
