Frankfurt am Main
Red light district
Simple vinyl sign
A clear uninterrupted pane of glass about 2.5meters x 2meters exposes the reception area
and the young girl working the front desk.
As I walk by she just stares out of the window
and I lock eyes with her week old black smudged eyeliner
she has an aura of chocolate brown frayed and forgotten hair.
I walk around the block and pass by once more, not because of her,
but because I secretly want her job.
This time she is reclined in the glass vitrine gazing up to a mounted T.V
... the hypercolour of The Simpsons shines on.
