Poem - Just the Same

The poem “Just the Same” was inspired by a meme that stated, “Sex work criminalization got me wondering: why is it illegal to sell something legal to give away?”


Just the Same

The exchange is condemned
flesh for payment in the hand
while the world ignores the same
as equal swaps have no blame

those servitudes by married states
proceeded by the dating game
ask that skin be exposed
prior to forms of intercourse

while the outcome is alike
imaginations seek to decry
those outside the prescriptive ways
when doubles standards are in play

purity separate from the price
what’s made right in a thought
curse the ones who provide
just the same in God’s knowing eyes.
