poem-a-day week5 (& magical minitour recounts)
my above-the-cut teaser this week is the poem that kicks off the army of toys magical tentacle tour. but in close 2nd is the last poem of the week, recounting our lovely/brief stay with the kind/hospitable/immensely talented photographer Kyle Cassidy! anyhoo, (we were on the road sat. the 5th through sat. the 12th, up and down the east coast, yo) friday June 4th was our cd release soiree at boston’s cafe939, we even got a swell review from the *Boston Survival Guide, thanks everso for the kind/ahem-ccurate words: jojo the Burlesque Poetess, with her ukulele and ‘lewd little girl’ persona… / A Walter Sickert & the Army of Broken Toys show isn’t an event; it’s a lifestyle. (!!!) and now, pardon me while i objectify our lovely burlesque artiste (Bex/Dalya) from the show and plaster her loveliness & pasties w. my poesy :) top photo by David Aquilina, lower by Justin Moore.

One corner of the green room is for getting
naked, tulle and tights, corsets and clavicle.
Our humid space overlooks a parking lot no one believes
exists unless you’re smoking fruity cigars. A sailor girl
arrives with cookies and, “you’re the burlesque poetess.”
A question with a known answer. A flush of daisies.
Dahlias for the Dalya blue flower who shook some mermaid-tail
feather for us during “sea song.” i swear i didn’t eat the glue
stick while making my “kissses (pecks ‘n poems for car charity) $1”
sign. i was happy to model my rusty escutcheon.
