    Bogdan’s writing always leaves the reader with a subtle punch in the gut. And this poem is no different. Kisses and chipped teeth couldn’t have been given a more superb form. Mutual attraction can happen at any place and with any person, but a mental asylum may add some crazy flavor.
    Congratulations Bogdan!

    Very good entry !! You wrote so that the reader would suppose a seductive game between the characters; but you gave a spectacular final shot. My condolences for the dog. A hug.

    Very interesting, you drew me quickly and I was waiting for anything really, perhaps a vampire I thought. Love the way you surprised us and it was a dog, very cleaver. By the way I loved the wild picture. Nicely paired indeed, Dragos!

    If I remember right, I didn’t have that ending in mind when I started writing this poem, but… it just happened, I guess (~‾▿‾)~
