(January 4,1931 / a citizen of the world)


They called her Bussie, dumpie with acne
so nobody kissed her.
A matinee groupie who seldom saw a film.
The only tenderness she knew was
when she gave 'her boys' fellatio.

As the lights went down, so did Bussie.
Oh, so gently,
to callous thrusting intermixed
with muffled laughter.
When the film ended Bussie would arrange
herself and smile sweetly at her boys.
But nobody kissed her.

    With a minimum of words, you have produced a detailed and sensitive portrait of Bussie with her acne and her need to be loved. Oh the agony of feminine plainness. I've no doubt the 'callous youths' didn't give her feelings a second thought. This is incredibly sad - and beautifully written. love, Allie xxxx (Report) Reply

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
