Trixie

Didn’t expect this
Red lipped
Buttoned up
Monologue
And strip on stage

Weird to think I know you
Strange to be a party to
This cold opening
Display of… fragility?

Every color of the rainbow
Cradling the panties worn
Of a volunteer who soon
Removes the lacy bra
That was left behind

Leaving behind stickers
And imagination

Making the most of those
Assets, and moving
For all that movement
Could be worth on stage

Cult appeal so surface
It fucked its way
Across almost
Every continent

Making sex so undervalued
By wanton display
To what end, I wonder
But I don’t wonder for long

The show has begun

And if I didn’t know yet
This starting pistol shot
Was what got
Everyone’s attention
