Gay American Gothic


“We didn’t need 
dialogue. We had faces.”
—Norma Desmond, Sunset Boulevard

The lovely Kansas couple—
Posing for the gay painter
Grant Wood recently

The older gentleman farmer—
In his bib overalls stoically
Holding his hayfork

He’s the RFD sugar daddy—
Standing there with his young
Gay nelly farmwife partner

The New Depression’s here—
Foreclosures are dime a dozen
Way out here on the Great Plains

A couple of Fly Over State fags—
Posing with down-to-earth dignity
Silently staring at nothing
