The Butt


Don't forget the butt
Do you feel sorry for it?
Shake your head sadly at its down-trodden looks
So abused, now frayed and thrown away

But observe the lipstick on its collar
It has felt the embrace of a woman
Or some painted lips
Has been ignited: set on fire with desire

Has been loved - however briefly
Has been longingly handled, touched: caressed
Sucked on wantonly
Pulled into a heaving chest

It lies now, not looking the best: broken
Its core crudely, publicly, exposed
Its heart torn open
Used and tarred, then discarded
