Blackthorn 

is muscular all year
flexing
        macho bones
                    angles  
                            points
but       
    in May
blackthorn turns
                  transvestite

all froth of frocks        all bridal bright

all frilly and           
                all lady-like     

all May Ball Queen in petal white




From Fiona Owen, O My Swan (pamphlet, out of print).
