schoolgirls look more like porn stars these days by James D Quinton

I worked for a while
in a convenience store
near a high school
everyday they’d come in
aged around 14-16 years
painted faces, short skirts, high heels

and then on the weekends
as I drank and smoked
in my favourite night spot
I’d see the same girls
illegally enjoy the night
hanging together in
a tight group
shy and apprehensive
in such an adult environment
painted up and wearing
shorter skirts, higher heels
their slender frames
silhouetted by the various
coloured lights sweeping
the dance floor

the guys would move in
picking off the girls
in the group one by one

their loss of innocence
sealed in a car park
or a back seat
or knees grazed

on broken concrete
