You Betta Werk

In honour of sending our first chapbook to the printer’s today, Gap Riot Press is sharing with you original poetry by founding co-editor Kate Siklosi. The Letraset poem below, a mesostic with a Gap Riot spine, is mined from the lyrics to RuPaul’s iconic 1993 single “Supermodel (You Better Work).” The Gap Riot ladies offer this poem to the internet gods and goddesses as a token of our appreciation for the inspiration we take, every day, from the Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve, and Talent of drag queens, femmes, and queers of all kinds and RuPaul’s not-so-gentle reminder that we betta werk.
