Lord Byron Attends A Transvestite Party by Christopher Barnes

One shade                   of forget-me-not dusts the eyes
Had half impair’d       splotch on a rag doll cheek
Which waves                in a shagadelic hair-piece, nuzzling
Or softly lightens        the boom-ting polkadot embodiment
Where thoughts            and amyl orbit the venturesome
How pure                   this backdoor man daylights as Miss Salacia

Glossary of slang: Shagadelic – Excellent, Boom-ting – impressive,
Backdoor – Anal

Christopher Barnes’ first collection LOVEBITES is published by Chanticleer. Each year he reads at Poetry Scotland’s Callender Poetry Weekend. He also writes art criticism which has been published in Peel and Combustus magazines.
