Congratulations, Florence. It's a terrific poem—wordplay and world arm in arm with just enough menace to keep them powerfully linked.

That's a really nice poem. Sophisticated and playful at the same time. Fun to read and with a point. Thanks for the sestina!


I really enjoyed reading this - a thoughtful, playful addition to "Yes We Can." Congratulations on the well-deserved recognition! Mikaela

Yes, yes, yes! I love these beautiful words. Rollicking, clever and smacking of truth.


Florence, Thanks so much for sending us your wonderful, clever poem.The wordplay was brilliant, and the message was loud and clear. You deserve the recognition. Gloria

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
