She sways – Shadorma Pair – November 7, 2015

old lady
sways seductively
once lovely
still graceful
now the men just ignore her
she’s still beautiful

standing there
outside the cafe
cold and sad
mini skirted
the lady of the night waits
on the cobbled street

  1. This is both sad and hopeful at the same time …. written with great respect for the older woman … recognizing her inner beauty, grace, and dignity. So very well done 🙂


    • It’s an interesting subject .. once upon a time in Europe (and in japan) prostitution was legal – therefore the red light districts … the state took upon itself to run health checks in Italy for example in the “houses”. Street walkers were women who for some reason “worked” independently .. and they were usually very poor and often ran the risks of illness.
