Molly, I love these posts this week, and your speculations and ruminations about poets and poetry in general, especially your comparisons/contrasts of the Commonwealthers and the Statesiders. I want ... I want ... I want to arm wrestle you and eat bugs at the same time! I want to dive into lakes with bug antennae still sticking to my lips, and crack my head on rocks! But mostly I want to arm wrestle you. No, don't claim an unfairness because you're a woman and I'm a man--it's too late for that! Roll up your sleeves, woman; I'm a-cummin' in! I'm an American poet! Lhude sing goddam!

Thanks for bringing laughs into our ultra-serioso conversation, Jim! This girl rolls her sleeves, but she stops at insect antennae. Eeeuuwwh!

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.
