Great gritty entry! -- cracked up at "Cricket procurement" and am relieved to read "half an hour.” Also stirred by Birkerts' “inwardly shifting and shaping" and “living liminally, hovering...." Hope now it's okay to include here my latest (kind of related):

Extracting Poetry with Pliers

After yelling to my wife,
"Our copy machine isn't working!"
she placed a pair of pliers on
The Best American Poetry 2007.
The book is long overdue, so I went
right at it -- at them, the lines and
words to be pulled and plucked
and kept from the anthology
(edited by Heather McHugh).
And, yes, I had to use some
tweezers, too.

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.
