Flipper (b. Mitzi)
B. 1958 Unknown / D. 1972 Grassy Key, Florida
Heart Attack

Tension: unremitting.
Location: left side of my neck.
A possible reason: it is exposed, as I sit at my desk by the window all day, to whatever still streams southeast out of Lower Manhattan.
Which is probably: smashed empty atoms snarled among particle waves.
In fact: the spores of a mushrooming waste cloud.
Picture the left side of my neck as a beach, and your kiss reduced to combing: Rainbow Cruise-loads of used condoms; Sargasso tides of plastic six-pack rings.

Consolation from Another Limited Source (c. 1997 A.D.):

It may shock some to learn that Flipper was a she, although a male stunt dolphin, Mr. Gipper, did all of Flipper's tail-walking (Mitzi never could master that trick).
