There Goes the Kingdom

r.i.p. or if you don't want to,
let it rip,
Lee Alexander McQueen
leaving earth shortly after his mom left

You certainly shook noses
with your use of cumin and
your oddly designed
perfume bottle,
a modern classic.

Jacques Cavallier, perfumer of Kingdom

For a sensitive description of the
flirtations of the dark side in
fashion and gay men creating
the feminine ID in much of our
culture here
