Drag Queen In All Night Cafe Makes Her Mark

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

There is no fair
For this bearded lady;
She is faster than a painted horse
And not afraid of sudden jerks.

Glancing at the security camera
Lights! Make-Up! Action!

A pistol shot…Hardly chaos
A quiverless hand
And oh-la-le-la
Goes the rocking shock of blood.

The eating virtuosi blink once
Blink twice
As a coffee-stained corsetiere
Hits the floor.

Removing nail varnish over morning papers
She wonders if there’ll be time
To hand-wash a gown of sequins
Before silver bracelets clank
And the hardener is applied.
