saucy

no one looks as sexy and saucy
as Greg in full drag
boy he is hot to trot!

in civvies he’s a chubby
balding man
pretty ordinary

in drag he is extraordinary
a sensual performer
who woos and seduces

he goes to incredible lengths
to transform his appearance
his whole persona lights up

bags me out for being a slack girl
too lazy to take advantage
of what I have naturally

I take it all for granted
avoiding sexual harassment
that he really yearns

differences add spice to life
when we open ourselves
we can enjoy the variations …

  1. Aha, that’s the secret …. to face life non-judgmentally, accepting others for who they are and now how they appear. I would love to know Greg!!

    • I had known him ages before he suggested I come to a show. As a chubby man he was bland, I mainly connected with his amazing partner. But once in drag his whole personality came alive, that was where he thrived!

  2. Holding a giant carrot, too! Whatever could that mean? “Eat your veggies, kids!”? Suppose we’ll never know…

    Total fascination with actors who immerse themselves thoroughly in their chosen roles. Here in the States, there was a TV series, “House,” wherein the lead actor, Hugh Laurie, is a Brit playing an American doctor. Occasionally, the character would speak in a not-quite-authentic English accent.

    Wow! A Brit, playing an American, forcing an English accent. Now that’s acting!

    • I’m sure he/she is advocating healthy eating habits 😎

      Some actors get so immersed in regular roles that they forget who they are but mostly it’s the audience who forget they are actors. One guy was flooded with flowers and congratulations for his on-screen wedding! He’d been happily married for 33 years, oops.

  3. I love this! 🙂 I’d love to know Greg! Being brave. Being open. Being able to transform. Being able to entertain. Wonderful qualities! And, yes…YAY for the differences! We can help each other. We can learn from each other! 🙂
    Those s-words at the top…we all need more of all of them in our lives! 🙂
    Greg reminds me of a fav quote:
    “The person who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. The person who walks alone is likely to find himself in places no one has ever seen”- Albert Einstein
    (((HUGS))) 🙂 ❤
    PS…it's sad when people can't be themselves, or share all parts of themselves. It's great to have a place you can be yourself fully or share a part of yourself that you can't always let out. 🙂

    • yes the confident saucy entertainer completely erased the non-descript Greg that I knew … for sure!
      What a wonderful world it will be when we can all be comfortable being ourselves no matter our race, religion or gender preference!

  4. There is a wonderful humor cross dressing. Especially when done for fun.
    Though I do remember reading somewhere that there was a husband and wife fighting in the Civil War here and when the husband died, the wife took his role along with his trousers! It wasn’t until an injury that she was found out. But she had already proven that she could do the job! But was ousted anyway because after all rules are rules.
    (And yes some rules need a good going over!)

    • Greg would have been much happier if he could crossdress full-time … and yes historically women have had disguise themselves as men, authors used male names so they could get published!

  5. I am not really into drag, but many of my fellow transgender friends first learned some comfort in expressing who they really were by help from drag community or performers. Once when shopping for some jewelry, the clerk asked me if I was looking for something “for my shows,” and I said, no, that I was just a transgender woman looking for what I needed like any other girl. One commonality I feel with Greg in our poem is the gratefulness with being able to finally be a woman. I would not say that I am saucy, but I feel a joy and energy that I will never take for granted. 🙂
