The Virgin in the Yard

I am young enough not to have sunned to that sour scent of sweat mixed with desperation—

It waits all around me.

This is what I see:

Rich men wear cream- colored suits.

This is what I know:

If I let mister stiffen into a smile for me

[Madmen are easy with these smiles— they know how to escape reality]

If I let mister do more than that he might turn to red in my hand

I know:

If I let mister do more than that he might turn to white in my hand

If I let mister do more than that he might turn me into gold. [End Page 269]
