On the New York Burlesque Festival – Saturday Spectacular

J.D. was a hack and a scoundrel
Who dreamt of writing less mongrel
His own heart was true
And he aimed for haiku
But his hangover left him with doggerel.
Murray Hill:
“People, we are uptown—let me hear it!”
—Sold Out Show—
“Put this on your fuckin’ Facebook”
*BOB*:
Heavenly body
O, Thus Spake Zarathustra:
Slay me already.
Julie Atlas Muz:
Rap powdered donut
That’s the sound of the police
You’re too hot, so Freeze!
(Cops/Robbers be one
As your mirror does show us
You’re just a badass.)
Fisherman Orchestra with Brian Newman:
O your vibes
Give me groovy vibes
Fisher-man
B. you knock me
Into the St. James
Infirmary
Kellita:
Long lashes
Butterfly kisses
So transplendant in blue…
Kellita
We need ya
Please, don’t move to Argentina
Nasty Canasta:
Nasty so witty
Coney, so lonely
(Burlesque conquers politics)
If only
Anna Fur Laxis:
Good girl / Bad girl
Scared / Snarl
Bible Beater / Tassel twirler
We’ll take you both
Glamazons:
Glamor-more
Sweet harmonies
Gimme more
Ruby Valentine:
Ruby is a redhead?
Bride all in red?
Our hearts race quick from dead.
Dr. Lukki:
Hypnotize
Murray’s eyes
O your thighs…
Indigo Blue & Leroi the Girl Boi:
Hot lesbo lemon
Squirting each other beats porn
“Sour Pussy.”  Damn.
Renea la Roux:
Aristocrat goth
Amadeaus do rock us
Buxom incarnate
Sexy Da Vinci:
O so fab
Sexy, “ha!”
Gay for you
Vivien Va Voom:
Journey is hip now
But we prefer your hips, Viv
Fly us to Denver
Anita Cookie:
Oh, Neil was a fool
To so wrongly ignore you
We’ll eat that Cookie
Gigi la Femme:
Hot as Tabasco
Wanna steal you away from
Doc Wasabasco
Gravity Plays Favorites:
Two smokin’-hot chicks
Picked up circus tricks
And “just playing,” found new moves of their own.
Now two smokin’babes
Cavorting in play
Make a motherfucking crowd ooh aah and moan.
Angie Pontani:
Green peacock
Of our wildest dreams
Ooh, shake it
Ms. Tickle:
Requiem beauty
To touch your wings, your rib cage,
Hauntingly lovely
Melody Sweets:
Gold Cleopatra
Ravenous sound, fury’s sight
“Did you hear that?” Yes.
Hot Toddy:
Prayed to the devil …
(that he’d do his devil bit)
Prayed to the right one
Starshine Burlesque:
We’re children again
When we hear “Ma-na-ma-na”
Aroused children, natch
Violet Eva (with apologies for hackwork in your nation’s fine art.):
Japanese cutie
Diaphanous shake shimmy
Quick, sensual charm
Dirty Martini:
Oh Dirty Dirty
So Dirty Dirty Dirty
We swoon, swept so clean
Jo Boobs
What is there to say—
Perfect in every damn way—
Jo, good as silence
Lux la Croix:
Oh, what a feeling
Make it happen (for us, now)
Amber Ray:
Oh snap, that wasp waist
And tassels like 6-shooters
Make the whole world swoon
Tigger!
Tigger!, my n-word
We love to see your peepee
Better still in gold
A three-and-a-half hour show
With no intermission
Holy fuck
I need some smokin’ and pissin’.
Kiss kiss,
JDX
