Ophelia’s Technicolor G-String

You may have noticed that it’s been awhile since we talked poetry with you. We get distracted by the shiny internets, but yes indeed, we’re still reading poetry. And today we’re reading “Ophelia’s Technicolor G-String.”
Where to even begin in our praise of this poem? The worst thing about this poem is the description of Ophelia and Hamlet “as thin as ghosts.” The best thing is the surprise ending, the one that will have you looking at Hamlet from a new perspective.
