Need Weird Topics in Female Embodiment / Sexuality / Celebrity / Saints
June 6, 2013 6:24 AM Subscribe
My current poetry project is poems that deal with subjects fitting into the above categories. Mata Hari's body never being collected and donated to medical school? Check. Evita's body being hidding away in a casket named Maria Maggi in Italy for years? Check. Poem about the relics of St. Therese going into space? Check. Female sideshow freaks? Check. Elvira as death incarnate? Check. You (kinda) get the idea now of what I'm trying to write about--weird stuff that's happened to women's bodies, especially when that brushes up against pop culture. I can try to explain more if this admittedly vague criteria is still unclear. Anyway, I'm looking for more topics to write about. Please throw out anything that might fit. Thank you!
