roadside whores

peace be upon you, and

peace be upon the whores

and the transvestites

standing at  roadsides

from their run down

wooden shacks

built on swampy land

uneven, but it’ll do

peace upon them

from their anuses

to their rectums

peace be upon them

even when they’re drunk

or running from the pigs

bless their feet


pray for me, for

my own peace of mind
