Where Her Breasts Used to Be, as published by A Quiet Courage.

Was very pleased to have thise poem appear on A Quiet Courage! Thank you  Clara Klein!

I have also included a link to their submission page : https://aquietcourage.wordpress.com/submissions/



He kissed her courage,

he kissed her fear,

he kissed her sadness,

her deep unknowability.


Because she was his dearest,

because she was all he loved

and ever wished to.
