Geisha - Poem by Edwin Cordero

Why are women Geisha?
No, not in a white mask,
But in their breath and past?
What a confusing behavior!

These would-be entertainers
Practice seduction as a craft,
Returning one of many favors
To the wallet that can match
The Highest Bidder's.

Yet, to the rest of men and women,
Being in their presence is refuted,
Due to not being up to task
In economic terms, at last.

There is another type of Geisha;
One that succumbs to faces,
Dressing as a doll with make-up
And filling victims with hatred.

Women who cannot look past
The superficial layers attached
To one's true demeanor—
Denouncing any pass
Made by those who took a chance
At loving their figure.

What a confusing behavior!
