Scene from a Dive Bar

Published July 20, 2015 by April Fox

The whores are dancing
in sensible shoes
to the beat of the songs that they loved
in their youth

Once upon a time, they might have been pretty.

Open-mouthed, scanning the room, looking for something they’ve lost
they are better loved than all of us
they are tired
and want to go home.
