Fascicle of Amity: 20

This is the last
and least among
these unnamable
bundles of billets-doux.

She lives with corporate plague
so near I never go there

The character of her skin
is a pale shade now.
So many,
two men most,
sought to suck her beauty dry.

She learns fast.
Come too close to her, they die.
