only sometimes pretty

I am never beautiful
and only sometimes pretty.

I have desire
but not the will to satisfy.

I am not a girl
who will ever say
please fuck me please.

The cost of love
or sexual pleasure
is too high for me.

Masturbation
is mere simulacrum,
but cheap and quick,
and just enough.
