Poems by Ophelia Raynor


Ballad of a Dustbowl Lesbian

Peach blood raw skin kiss

fairyland dyke

burning my bra


the remaints of your sacred marriage


Approved By The Capitalist Agenda

Would it be art if-

I cut off all my hair if-

I smeared mascara on my cheeks if-

I wrapped my chest with ace bandages if-

I was the Tragic Queer if-

I was the Tragic Queer you write about.
