Nissa in Rachel's Arms
I was invited by Kaaren Kitchell and Richard Beban to submit for their ParisPlay site's annual "Sensual Surprise" Surrealist Café, so I sent a poem about kisses. Not just any kisses, a very special kind -- doggie kisses. Before my beautiful Silky Terrier Nissa died, about a year ago I wrote the poem about the way she liked to bestow kisses as a form of language. In honor of Nissa, it's published today.
