"Can't you see what I'm trying to tell you?If only you knew how much I smell you."
The poems by Roy Blount, Jr. were inspired by the lovely photographs by Valerie Shaff, which appear in If only you knew how much I smell you: True portraits of dogs (A Bullfinch Press Book).
In case you haven't noticed, I have been experiencing technical difficulties with my blog template. My apologies for fonts of different sizes, awkwardly placed photos, and text caroming around the textbox. I'm hoping a new "stretch" template will improve matters. Thanks for your patience! --z
