Love Letter of a Cultured Courtesan to his Smutty Suitor

by Jay Coral

Please do not Petrarch me
with your lovely words
i won't shovel cheaply empty lines
your dirty poems especially
to impress on my silky lingerie
and your decadent gifts
like the hard-on that you cannot sustain
let the roses wither
and chocolates goo into slime that you are
read me something tasteless
perhaps i might be blindsided
but please don't romanticize.
