In my last post I was pressured to change a reference
to a cold 'spinster's kiss' to a cold 'witch's kiss'.
I felt this may be unfair to the witches.
The Witch’s Kiss
The cat watches dispassionately,
The tail flicks to and fro.
It is, it feels, for deviants,
To merge their faces so.
It promises much more than this;
And hold me in her spell.
Transported so affectionately,
The cat can go to Hell.
