Concerning Ezra Pound Drag

A person should never stop trying to be: Marilyn Monroe, Madonna, Barbra Streisand, Liza Minnelli, Donna Summer, Joan Rivers, Diana Ross, Lucille Ball, Celia Cruz, Tina Turner, Mae West, Cher, Grace Jones, Marlene Dietrich, Bette Midler, Carmen Miranda,  Angelina Jolie, Andy Warhol, Austin Powers, Johnny Depp, Elton John, Michael Jackson,  Justin Timberlake, Ozzy Osbourne, or Boy George–those people we see as drag night. Until Ezra Pound in the 21st century makes the list, please, stop telling me how fabulous he is. (or Robert Frost for that matter)

We should never speak
too big till there’s a drag queen
out there being us.
