Headline Poem 4/30/14 -- Porno Sushi

I read this article from The Smithsonian today about sushi. The article itself is extremely poetic, using words that lure, simplify, and manipulate the audience. I thought of a local sushi spot in my hometown that I believe is now closed. I never tried it. I was hesitant because it was next door to a sex shop. A few of my friends called it the "porno sushi" place, and said, in spite of the location, it was really good. Here's today's headline poem. 

Porno Sushi

There used to be a sushi spot
Placed ever so closely to a sex shop
Where junkies and regular men
Watched movies and ate dessert
From magazines and books, women they'd never touch in real life 
Ordered fresh from the menu,
All you can eat.
