Poem: Buzz cut Ronald McDonald

Powder white clown

masked like the Joker Riddler

in a spider velvet vest

Eurythmics strikens me

with voluminous voracity

perfect beauty strangles

holocaustic angles

redheaded militant muse

Annie Lennox wolf calling siren moan

I’m afraid of your pinstriped groan

Straightforwardly military cadaver

turns me off to Ronald McDonald

Dominatrix CEO in life sized model

With whips and blindfolds

you normalized pain and torture

with chic androgyny.

I watched you when I was a child

understanding no sexual codes

I just listened to your voice

didn’t know there was an agenda.
