What’s Become of Her

Gartered and girdled, ready to work

She straps on her hooker heels

Checks her purse for necessities

Cigarettes, condoms, mace, chocolate bars

She hits the street running,

Another day another dollar

Two years on this corner

A lifetime in this business

Seventeen and she believes she’s seen it all

She wears the scars on her body

Hides the ones in her heart and mind

Paints that smile on her face, sends her mind away

Another car stops, she bends into the window

Hi honey do you want to party?

The line rolls off her tongue

Her eyes fail to see what has become of her
