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.
