Sad Old Drag Queen

He looked in the mirror
How gorgeous he was
With his sequined spangly skirt
Covering his hairy legs
And his suspenders
Only slightly soiled.

it is a picture I want in my head, but he certainly has the right to dress any way he likes.~ Geezer.

Honest critique and comments shouldn't hurt.
It's why we are here, to get better at our craft.

Hi Edna, I think your poem is too short to get the gist of what is in the writer's mind. Or the reader's, for that matter. As it is, it doesn't cast a good impression, although I think you're just showing how that man must see or think of himself.
"Sad Old Drag Queen" does not attract me as a title. Old fashioned expression. With all due respect, Edna, I always read you and comment. Gracy

Know then thyself, presume not God to scan,
The proper study of Mankind is Man.
Plac’d on this isthmus of a middle state,
A being darkly wise, and rudely great….

...whch I shall have to disagree with.
But never mind.

It's OK, Edna. There's no need to agree on everything. I respect all the poetry you write. Always brings surprises and originality. Best, Gracy
