These are lovely, though that 'Pulitzer Prize in Poetry' on the WCW comes perilously close to wrecking it: if it had to be on there, it needs to be smaller or somehow less emphasised than the author and title.

It's interesting, JRSM; it doesn't really bother me. The wheat is such an incredibly dense, heavy force on the page, almost like a crashing wave, that the prize line looks like it doesn't have a chance, were the wheat to fall. It looks titchy to me, beneath that bristling arc.

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.
