W<j>P Newnham.


I feel particularly tumescent with a hangover: circumcision scars like silken smooth as my cock gorges blood; not erect, just engorged. As I move my clothing rubs and brushes against it and my pants are filled with ants: like a slow moan; velvet ants tracing my genitals with silken gestures and spicy caresses.


Dark Fantasies.


Saturday night

A head full of speed

My body just has to keep moving;

My eyes need input.


Cruising the darkened and seedy streets of the citys’ down-market playground; anyone I know still work the strip? Hookers drink from hip flasks with runs in their stockings and runs in their mascara with their eyes running down their faces………

Danish-Blue………….Lovecraft………………Venus…………….Pleasure Cave…..


Do Not Enter If Nudity Offends!


Cunts and cocks and fisting and glue-shots

T.V. magazines line the walls



Looks kinda’ interesting to me…….




<Insinuating Simper>

“Do you have a name?”




“James this is Shelly:

She is just dying to meet you!”




“Ouzo and coke please.”


“And a double vodka; rocks.


An arched painter brow, perfumed eyes sunken and hiding in dark sockets. Reddened lips. A cut-off t-shirt slips over a shoulder and a perfect round tit stares blindly out.


“So, what do you do for a crust?”


“I’m a hooker.”


“Aren’t we all?”


“What do you mean?”


“It’s all work isn’t it?

I mean I am a factory worker,


I pick things up

I put them down:


Back and arm muscle,

Exchanging function for dollars.

You; you’re just using different muscles;

It’s all work!”


“Oh I know what you mean……

I must have been to a dozen or more hotels tonight;

Drinks at every one, up and down the stairs:

I saving up for surgery so

I’m just Working Working Working.

Will you dance with me James?”




We dance; well she dances with practised feminine gestures, transsexual twostep, with the studied boredom of a drunken stripper: Arabesque, Demi-Plie, Enchante Darling. I concentrate on holding myself upright as boom box speakers pulse bass board beats straight to my groin. Strobe lit repetitions and sudden flood light white movements and clusters of red laser pin points of light catching and contouring and animating her dancing body. Vague phantoms pirouette: smoky mirrored reflections.


“Do you want……………”


A darkened stairwell

Heels clicking on wooden stairs

Fingertips brushing the banister as a lead

The sound of stilettos






“To come…………


Danish-Blue………….Lovecraft………………Venus…………….Pleasure Cave…..


Do Not Enter If Nudity Offends!


Cunts and cocks and fisting and glue-shots

T.V. magazines line the walls




“To my place…………”


Taffeta silk and lace blinds over windows blackened with paint, crushed velvet dressing gowns and bongs circulating the room; the sweet smell of Buddha burning and mingled perfumes. Barbie dolls regiment along the wall, costumed toy soldiers:

sexless, plastic, sterile.


A halter top slips:

A blind plastic tit.

Short shorts pulled down:

A cuntless crutch.


“………….For a smoke?”


There are four phones; one for each of the working girls, business lines, busy, ringing.


“Tell him I’m not here……”


“Covers escort agency.”

“Yes of course I

remember you darling.”


“For the first hour;

150 for the second…..”


I feel particularly tumescent with a hangover:


“……….touch my back………”


Circumcision scars like silken smooth:

My cock gorges blood.



……..You Are So Gentle….


….So Gentle…”
