“Motel 6”

passing the motel
is she in there
trapped in a body
under a body
making money
that won’t fill her up

is she saying ‘yes’
but crying ‘no’

is she safe as a victim
and empowered by control

is she not affected
by what’s affecting her

how many ropes
are tied to her soul

how many ounces
of hope has she lost

is she in there
working
as if she didn’t care

is she in there
searching
for love through lust

is she in there
believing
that’s all she’s worth

is she in there
is she out there
is she lost
is she found
is she crying
is she hating
is she losing

more and more and more
every moment

God
help her
