Paid in Full

by M’Shai Dash

I pay you with the brown of my nipples

Purchase your service with one
fistful of my hair

Spiraled at the nape of my neck

Pennies, nickels, quarts of sweat

I give you, on loan, my narrowest point
(where the trickle of my waist swerves inland
and flows out to the mouth of my hips)

We barter, fairly, surrender for capture

Each receiving change
