Poems in Quail Bell Magazine

The super-cool Quail Bell Magazine has been publishing some poems from my upcoming pop culture, feminist chapbook, PLAYING ONE ON TV, so I'll be sharing them here in the coming weeks.

Today, feast your eyes and brains on two (TWO) poems about Lisa Turtle, called "Lisa Turtle's Fashion Show" and "Lisa Turtle Comes Out of Her Shell." I've always felt Lisa got the short stick on Saved By the Bell - she rarely had any lead story lines and certainly no big romance arcs. This is problematic, considering she's the only woman of color on the show, which is something I obviously didn't think too much about when watching it as a kid. Now, however, it's become something I can't stop thinking and writing about. Damn feminist enlightenment.
