Prostitution Detail

She scanned the hustling and bustling

traffic for the stalker,

pulling tricks night after night

as a streetwalker,

she waited under the streetlight,

pulling at her stockings,

and correcting a cramp in her neck,

she was nervous, a total wreck,

the other girls didn’t seem to care,

but even with a customer

she had the same fear,

she knew selling her body was a crime,

but she had been walking the streets

for a very long time,

one girl was found wrapped in sheets,

shot twice by the stalker,

now all the girls were feeling the heat,

sometimes when she leaves with a customer,

her calm would fail,

customers could be female,

but they were mostly male,

and she will stop

when the law makes changes

in the prostitution detail.
