Your Money's No Good Here (Samuel Jones-Bastrop, LA)

Romance is sex to the virgin
And I don't want an "okay,"
Kind of love.
The result is me--
Spreading the cheeks on my face

Thinking that what I'm offering
Is more valuable.
But then again,
What is an heirloom to a stranger,
A dollar to a Moon Man, or
A compliment to an emotional masochist?
"Your money's no good here."
They say
By turning away.
So I'm left
Unnamed, unclaimed,
But still every bit as rich.

When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
