Lily Pond

Lily Pond is the editor of Yellow Silk, Journal of Erotic Arts. She lives in the San Francisco Bay area, where “the ants are crawling into the hummingbird feeder and the apples are going unpicked on the neighbor’s tree. My mother always said I should finish college but she didn’t tell me it would lead to this. I figure, do what you can while you can, and you probably can much longer than they tell you.”

— From June 1985

The Day Of Saint Valentine

And finally you’re a lady. You sleep with your cat, wash between your legs with washcloths, and go to the bathroom with the door closed. Lead weights fall on you.
