Joanne the Poet - The Poetry of Joanne M. Clarkson

Perfume River Poetry Review

The Goodbye Skin. Perfume River Poetry Review, Issue 2: Ars Erotica, 2014. This is another beautiful, tasteful, sensitive collection produced by Vuong Quoc Vu, editor of Tourane Press. My poem is another ‘true’ one about a hospice patient’s wife. I didn’t see these people very many times. He had a horribly painful nerve disease that during the final stages made touch excruciating. After he passed, she asked for a few moments to lie beside him, something she had not been able to do for a long time. This journal is available at Tourane Press, P.O.
