This is a poem that many of us can relate to. The matter-of-fact nature of Anne's usage of words touches anyone who has been trashed or used before...

such abrasive imagery...the reason i love sexton's work.

What is wonderful about this poem is how Anne Sexton articulates exactly what she means without getting wordy - she shows how both the prostitute and the man paying for her services are degraded.
