Very vivid image, but the main problem is that you never IDENTIFY the whore. Who IS this woman? The poem has the feel that you're not talking about a specific woman, but an ideal, but you never really identify what that ideal is. I loved the end of the poem, starting with "Man is not born unto man," is really great, especially the "but we burst, head first," line. Really vivid. Let me suggest, though, that you move the "from" in that line down to the beginning of the next line. In addition to tightening up the line, it would also make it jive better with the line after.
