This is just perfect Laura. It says so much. Thank you for knowing and posting this poem.

Yes, a perfect choice, Laura.

I will look forward to your musings on the suicide of poets. I wonder why so many have taken their own lives in the last two years. Sarah Hannah was barely 40 when she leaped off the roof of a building; a superb posthumous poem of hers was selected for BAP 2009. And last summer my old friend Tom Disch shot himself to death on the 4th of July. What terrible suffering went into these deaths. And how cruel for the survivors.

I agree, beautiful. I miss William Meredith, he was so kind to me at St. Mary's College. Thank you, Laura.

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.
