Sonnet on Peace
The fourth of a set of four Pearly Queen Sonnets inspired by details from Pussy Power Pearly Queen (2012) facebook.com/Pu55y.Pow3r
Writer of rhymes and reasons mashing up Shakespeare and Dr Suess, sonnets a specialty.
I should probably warn you that some of my longer poems, published here, are quite sweary in places and refer to drug abuse, homophobia, and hypocrisy around sexual violence within sound system culture. They do all rhyme though. And they're full of cultural references, I usually give some links and info on these.
I use traditional metrical verse forms as a framework for recycling all the random bits of information in my head into something coherent. I hope the meaning in my work is bigger than the structure. I hope you enjoy it.
Thanks for reading :)
