AKA Bella, Bella Bellissima Padme Hum, Punkledunchkin, You Wretch. My sweet companion of the last 10 years has gone to the Rainbow Bridge, where she can be seen cavorting happily.
The best description of her occurs in Zajko Kokorajko, the music for a dance called Arap. The name of the music is “The Rabbit’s Wedding.” The rabbit’s bride is Widow Fox:
a flowery bouquet,
a spoiled pet,
a well-known fussy eater,
an avoider of work,
The village fussbudget!
I miss her dreadfully and at the same time I can feel her liberated spirit wiggling in joy, and the love she has for me and the love I have for her are all around me, and in my heart.
