love it, love it, love it, love it, love it.

Emma! Thank you for posting this!

And THAT's why we need poetry! Bravissima, Stacey!

Wonderful poem -- among my favorites. I'm very glad Emma posted it.

I am glad this poem was finally published. She read it at Books and Books in 2006 and I told her I wanted it as soon as she read it and finally it showed up in your edited issue. It is a wonderful poem and I am glad you highlighted here.

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.
