The Art Sonneteer visits Queer British Art at @Tate #poetry

On viewing Queer British Art at Tate Britain


Queer British Art is launchéd at the Tate,

an overview of works by artists queer

who had to deal with prejudice and hate –

As Oscar showed they had a lot to fear.

Bloomsbury’s in, a lot of Duncan Grant,

Hockney of course. A famous pic by Gluck.

Coded desires are there because they can’t

be open – without a lot of pluck.

The show though feels a bit too staid.

from your mind it will quite quickly fade.
