Sex Worker # 12:
Baby man is easy
$250: bottle, burp, bed.
No dirty diapers.
Baby man likes breast milk.
won’t drink formula or warmed whole;
he’s a connoisseur.
His refrigerator is a shelf of thick, cream goop
in plastic bottle nipples ready to be warmed
by boiling water on the stove: no microwaves.
In my sweet mommy voice,
“Little Davey wavy is nutsy wutsy isn’t he?”
I wipe his baby burble bubbles of viscous yellow.
He’s a six week old with wobble head.
His arms waggle, mouth roots for more bottle.
Babyman is authentic.
I lay him down in his oversized crib
king bed fluffy baby bumpers: jungle themed.
He loves his rhino pillow.
I tip toe into the kitchen and get my $250
second drawer next to the dishwasher
and let myself out.
