In The Bordello

Poem By Herbert Nehrlich

She stuck a Winston 'tween her lips
and flicked her nicotine stained fingers
amply endowed with giant hips
and wore perfume that somehow lingers
then they went up the stairs to bed
to do some urgent fornication
and in the morning they were dead
it was a sober revelation
for in a brothel no one dies
because a brothel ain't a clinic
for you who frequents there and buys
you are a slimeball, I'm a cynic.

Comments about In The Bordello

Everyone is holy in church pews or in bordellos, I think William Blake said that, if I'm mistaken, I said that-all the best, Herbert!

Such skills required.
And popular.

Damn, it was obvious, he had been truly slaughtered,

I was not looking when you found me
you stopped just long enough to smile.
I felt your presence all around me
and hoped that you would stay awhile.

A Little Bit Of Darkness

It had gone dark in my world.
An invisible sadness, one of substance
drifted in, from a horizon so far
and so unknown to me,
