Paul Hostovsky’s Comments

Like some or maybe many men, I have written more than a few poems about women’s breasts, all from a man’s point of view. “Fit Punishment,” however, is my attempt to write a poem about women’s breasts and the men who view them, from a woman’s point of view.

“Woman with Chrysanthemums” and “Different People” are two portraits of the same sophomoric prick I knew and disliked back in college, and have often thought of, but will think of no more now that I have dually dispatched him in these two poems.

“My Letter to the Parking Clerk” is what it claims to be.
