Eva Collins : Photographs and Writing

Words

Delirium

The whores by the doors
on dark steamy wharves
embrace young sailors
washed up on their shores
who are looking for love
but harbour bad news
of being infected
with sores that ooze
down
into dry gritty sand
where desperate women
in loose stockings stand
with hot smeared red lips
and swollen insides
they feverishly dream
of becoming rushed brides
to the lost men they clutch
who can now barely crawl
whose last breath they catch
before they all
fall.
