Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Geoff Young: Style, Insight, and Durability (Terence Winch):


I agree wholeheartedly. And thanks for the link to the interview, brilliant.

Thank you, Terence, for your insights that make me want to purchase a book of poetry for the first time in years (I'm assuming, of course, that I can still get yours at no cost).

Thanks, Howard, but you may be able to get Geoff's at no cost as well. See this from a poem in his new chapbook: "...The white shark, fear-/Less in its field,/Outruns the current, reminding/Everyone who writes/To give it all away."

Ah, now I am cured of my abysmal ignorance and I know the work of Geoff Young, and treasure it. Thanks, Professor Winch, you are a godsend. Ah, the Easter Snow, it fades away too soon.

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.
