June 2022 poetry publications

For Pride Month, I published quite a lot of drag poetry! These poems are from my May All Our Pain Be Champagne follow-up, where I collage the Twitter postings of RuPaul’s Drag Race contestants. The chapbook is currently a WIP, but here’s the first pieces to be published:

Read “A’keria C. Davenport Goes for the Emmy” in Morning Fruit Magazine (note: the publication appears to have disappeared, so the link has been provided with Wayback Machine).

Read “Monet X. Change Records Five Podcasts at Once” and “Kandy Muse Sitting Alone in the Black Lodge” in Fairy Piece Mag.

Read “Farrah Moan Doesn’t Emphasize, She Highlights” in Sage Cigarettes. This poem was also one of Sage Cigarettes‘ Best of the Net nominees for 2023, my first BotN nomination!
