White Girl Sang Blues by Bryn Fortey

(For Janis Joplin)

Beat Chick
Rock chick
Dope
Sex
Cheap cheap thrills
Felt it
Meant it
Passed the Bessie Test
Rode horse
Rode studs
Rode a short life
Down to hell
Couldn’t live it
Only sing it
White girl
Sang blues

A veteran of the writing game for more years than he cares to remember, Bryn Fortey edited the well received (at the time) OUTLAW, a post-Beat poetry magazine from the 70s and at the same time had short stories in FONTANA anthologies, among others. After a while away from the literary scene he recently returned with both fiction and poetry acceptances. In 2014 The Alchemy Press published his debut collection MERRY-GO-ROUND, combining short stories and poetry in one book.
