A Day In The Life Of An Aspiring Transvestite - Poem by Charles Chaim Wax

Tired of typing gibberish
on a rainy Sunday
I journeyed to Brooklyn’s famous
Kings Plaza Mall
and wandered
until Victoria’s Secret blazed before me

“Don’t say another world, ” she sighed.
I paraded into the Dressing Room
and counted three completely nude women
and seven semi-nude women
posing before mirrors.
Legs trembling I mumbled
“Such beauty”
when I felt a tap
on my shoulder.

and saw
a short Transvestite wearing
a pale rose satin slip who asked,
“Whatta ya think, angel? ”
“Absolutely and thoroughly

    This caused some ruckus! Great piece Charles. Reminded me of a scene in Bukowski's short story 'Vengeance of the Damned', but without all the violence....a shopping spree indeed! (Report) Reply
