day 20

hookers in Tijuana
charge forty dollars
twenty goes to them
nineteen goes to their
pimp

one dollar is for
the boy who cleans
the room
after

the girls wear long
hoops of odd colored
gold, some dangle
fake turquoise from
their plunging
necklines

some line up at
this small taco
stand that sells
broth for fifty cents
from styrofoam cups

I wonder if they know
styrofoam lasts
forever

but I image they do
I imagine they know
of most things
that last
