|Cal's Reading of Angel Child
After the mid-1980s Cal turned his attention to poetry and photography, usually of male nudes. In collections he titled The Daddy Poems, 10 Poems for Luna Park, and Bootless Cries:Cock Poems for a Rainy Day,his poems,like his plays, are often pornographic. Nevertheless, several were published in Amethyst magazine in 1987 and in Gay Sunshine: A Journal of Gay Liberation in 1982.
These two poems that appeared in Amethyst: A Journal for Lesbian and Gay Men (Spring 1987) are excerpts from Cal’s The Daddy Poems.
