Can Kisses Cold as Gold

Can kisses, cold as gold
Bring joy
To the sorrowing
Boy?

Can borrowing
A pretend
Friend
For the night
End
In anything other
Than temporary delight?

And can a man
Change his “lover”
As easily as the cover
On his bed
Where a myriad heads
Have been,
Praying for the morning to be seen
So they may depart
Carrying in their heart
The secret of an ancient profession
That, through discretion
Or shame
Few will name?
