Air Kissing on Mars by Kim Dower

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


A Kim Dower poem is a portal to a haunting universe of everyday life wrapped into poetic reverie. Lost languages, locomotives pummeling through dreams, taxi drivers thrown by the earth’s rotation, shadows in closets, vanishing carrots, men who exfoliate—all come together in this opus of shining and startling wisdom.  At once rhapsodic, edgy and sensual.

Kim (Freilich) Dower grew up in New York on the Upper West Side of Manhattan and received a BFA in Creative Writing from Emerson College in Boston.    Upon graduating, Kim stayed at Emerson where she taught Introduction to Creative Writing: Poetry for two years before moving to Los Angeles where she pursued other writing projects and began her own literary publicity company called Kim-from-L.A., the name for which she has become famous in the world of book publishing.   A few years ago, “like magic, like a dream,” poetry re-entered her life and the poems have been rushing out as if a 25 year dam had broken, and she’s been writing three or more poems a week.   Kim’s work has appeared in Ploughshares, The Seneca Review, and in the on-line video magazine, Guerilla Reads.    She lives with her family in West Hollywood, California.
