desires – running amok
next to the skin the threadbare socks

the torn shirt
the gaping holes
the peeping breasts
the passerby’s modesty tests

desires – running amok
next to the skin the threadbare socks

the loose hair well merged in the dust
the deep eyes
searching the onlookers
searching for trust

desires – running amok
next to the skin the threadbare socks

the oversize skirt
sweeping the street
her spread hands – onlookers vanity greet
the eyes that look at her as an undesirable treat

desires – running amok
next to the skin the threadbare socks

food….such a need
to fulfill this desire
she surrenders
to the desires of many a greed

desires – running amok
next to the skin the threadbare socks
