A 35 year old Girl by Jon Bennett

We talk about money
her parents don’t
give her enough
“At least they pay
for my apartment.”
Sad brown eyes
she hasn’t had a drink
yet today
and it takes me
off balance.
“What’re you thinking?”
she says
but not that way
only to fill
an awkward silence
“Looks like I’m not
going to get fucked,” I say
and those sad brown eyes
begin to cry.
