The S-Word

Category: Poetry/Lyrics

We’ve all been a slut at one time or another -
To a stranger; an older brother;
a friend; a so-called sister;
a man who counts conquests on his fingers.
I’ve met
Old sluts.
Young sluts.
Too-young-to-even-know-what-“slut”-means-sluts.
Virginal sluts.
Slut-because-of-her-slutty-top-sluts.
Slut-because-of-her-slutty-skirt-sluts.
Slut-because-of-her-slutty-shoes-sluts.
Sluts in fishnet tights.
Sluts in knee-length skirts.
Pregnant sluts, nauseous in waiting-room chairs.
Sluts with bruises, or smeared lipstick and torn clothes.
Sluts who fuck to forget.
Sluts who fuck to feel beautiful.
Sluts who
just
really
like
sex.
Slut. Slag. Slapper. Skank.
They’re just small s-words, pricking the skin.
Keep your head up.
Don’t let the wolves in.
