The flip side of "Afterglow." Even at 11, I felt that what he was doing was wrong, and I was "trading off" sex for affection. It's not true, but still I feel it.


Hello, Sailor! Come on up!
You're very hungry, I can tell.
Well, good for you. Just for today,
I've got some tail to sell.

No cash is needed, no credit required.
My dear, I work for cheap.
Just some words, I'll do for you.
And after, not a peep!

First off, the clothes, to see my wares.
Ah, but for that you have to pay!
Listen to me, give me sympathy,
And then we're on our way!

A kiss? Oh sure, I'll let you have
One that belies my tender years.
A little "boy, you are so special."
(Please ignore, for a while, my tears.)

A man who likes to get to business.
I feel your hand down there!
But wait while I collect your toll.
Not much, please one "I care."

Talented, it seems, you are,
In the "Oral Arts."
More for this. A big, tight hug
To feel the beating of our hearts.

Throw me down, climb on top.
Time for you to "take a ride!"
My meter's running, so say "I love you,"
Then go right on inside!

Yes, all these things I will allow.
Pay the fair, the rest I'll do.
Best, you don't have to cruise the streets
Because I'll gladly (?!) come to you.

May we all realize this was another lie they told us.



There are reasons I'm taking medication. They're called "other people." - Me, displaying my anti-social tendancies

Scot, I have no words to say. The poem is wonderful, well done, I am sure it would be considered very fine work.

But the subject is so painful. It is difficult for me to know that all around our country, some llittle guys are going threough something similar. I hope that what we all do does in some way save some boys from this kind of thing. What you little boy says is very much what I felt, what I needed and what I was willing, I guess, to go through, for the tiniest crumb of what? Love, hardly, I guess, just attention.

You have a powerful way of saying something that has tons of feeling in it. I wish I had the money to put together some of the poems we have had here over the past year or so. The trouble is, I fear that the people who most need to read an anthology like that, would never open the book.


If we do not live what we believe, then we will begin to believe what we live.

A hard hitting poem.
The things we will do for the warmth of another human, for the words "you are cared for, I love you"!

I still see myself being a slut, yearning for affection, and bargaining my flesh to settle for 'afterglow'.

Will we ever learn?

I can totally relate 2 this, most of us can I think. Each time it happens, the sad sad cycle continues.

Scot thanks for helping me to remember what it was like with my uncle when I was five. I so loved him and I would to anything just to collect that toll the words I so longed to hear. I love you. Looking back with the wisdom of 45 years of hindsight, I am amazing at what those words could buy. Why did I have to be so desprite so long ago. Mike
