The Prey | A Poem by Judy Moskowitz

They tease
Dangle you on a string
They please Sometimes
They kiss and tell you
You’re a pretty young thing
They kill you in ways
You can’t describe
They sell all the lies
You need to buy
And you buy
And you buy
You pretty young thing
No returns or guarantees
They have you
Where they want you
Beg for forgiveness
Say they love you
Kill you with kindness
You need to believe
In something
You pretty young thing
