Thomas 114 (1) Simon Peter said to them: “Let Mary go away from us, for women are not worthy of life.” (2) Jesus said: “Look, I will draw her in so as to make her male, so that she too may become a living male spirit, similar to you.” (3) (But I say to you): “Every woman who makes herself male will enter the kingdom of heaven.” The Gospel According to Saint Thomas
Helen Hajnoczky’s Tight-Lacing
"Tight-Lacing is an excerpt from a larger project of the same name. Each page spread features an original Victorian or Edwardian corset advertisement on the verso, and on the recto features the poetic recreation of the same ad. The corsets are rendered in letters, making them into visual poems, and the ad copy is scrambled to create a new poetic text."
The chapbook is available as a downloadable pdf from UbuWeb.
