Jennifer - great eggplants! Beautiful. I like your sense of what you're looking for in a book of poems. Yes, the hat is important and I don't need too many, sometimes one is enough, if I find myself thinking about it years after having read the book (eg.Katha's Turning Thirty, posted the other day, which I first heard her read, oh, a long time ago, though there was more than one hat in Antarctic Traveller and in Mind-Body). I'm reading Lydia Davis now and there are hats everywhere (also fists). How 'bout you? You're good with hats and fits but where have you found them?

That "fits" is a typo but it somehow makes sense, yes?

Radio

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

THE RULE OF THUMB
by T.P.Winch

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