« Jackie Robinson | Main | Remembering Darragh Park [by David Lehmam, David Grant Noble, & Others] »

Terrific poem, beautifully illustrated.

My Darling Nin; If it were not for her, the world would never have had an orgasm-- but beyond that minor recreation: Nin is funny, sweet, brilliant, original, daring, iconoclastic and holy. How could we wish for more? Except for MORE NIN! MORE PLEASE.

Thank you David! Thank you Grace! I am so honored to be featured here!!!

Nin--you HAVE compiled THE poetic "opus of orgasms." I cannot begin to tell you what your work has meant to me and to my students and upon how many MFA thesis reading lists you appear! You are an original, unclassifiable genius!!

I love the looking back in this poem, the creation of a persona!

wickedly witty

An intelligent, ever developing, totally unique poem. Nin Andrews knows about a lot of things, including writing exquisite sentences that end up stretching momentously. A joy to read! A great pick of the week of a month of a season of a year of a life. Thanks!


Think of all the cold showers you have forced people into after spending a half an hour with your orgasm poems. But people often overlook the other Nin, who writes those lyrical and autobiographical Southern poems, and then reads them in a voice Blanche Dubois would envy.

This poem is right on the button--if "button" can be alluded to lasciviously. As much as I adore great music, "eargasm" just doesn't cut it. Brava, Nin, on your classical gas-m! (Mason Williams gets a residual, by the way.)

May all your words keep coming. Wonderful work!

Love it! And the artwork, as always!

Thank you all for your comments!! I am just so grateful for your kind words.
