Lexington Poetry Month
article by
Autumn Hines

She lived for outrageuos acts-
acts to keep all eyes on her.
Grappling for attention
in unlikely places.

And celebrating when her secrets
were shared.

Hated and adored for being a whore,
but being an angel all the same.

Fascinating to watch swirl around
like pieces of paper in front of a fan.
