'Brothel' by Thomas M. McDade

Ashtrays overflow

Tobacco’s the call

Few lungs can resist

For leftover panting

Marlboro incense

Nipple filter tips

Plug some ears

Flute charmed

Cellophane strip

Stockings molt

Forked-stick fantasies

Low hissing tongues

Mirror unfolding

Paper tube weds

Finger skin

Kisses a candle

Flatters our faces

Because we are
