The Harlot’s Child
By Susan M. Boogher
SHE is a little downy
With eyes as quick as mirrors
To give back what she sees.
And she has a sidelong way        5
Of peeking in the corners
Of Life’s eyes
As though she begged a chance
To please,
As though she promised        10
To agree.
She knows somehow the colors of the world
Are fast:
Chameleon of soul, she sets herself
To acquiesce.        15
