Succubus Alumnus


Succubus Alumnus 

Disrobing demonic anatomy,

you discover whilst you’re unbuttoning 

in a palace of partial nudity 

demoniac wings, shadow veined, webbing 

across their modest span spied in mirror,

cash in hand. Topless succubus in a 

g-string, glittered, grad school dropout flitters

shrewd, stilettos, spring, with new nude name —

nomenclature’s everything. Puritans 

point you out as “whore” but “angels” blinks above 

oak double doors held open by some man,

costume bag in another’s hand.  Beloved 

metamorphosis, remakes in cash cocoon 

succubus alumnus to drain men soon.
