Fred singing "They Can't Take That Away From Me" to Ginger in the fog on the ferry is about the most romantic thing ever. That wonderful lyric - the contrast of the little silly details - "the way you hold your knife," "the way you sing off-key," and so on - with the poignance of "the way you changed my life," even more touching because Fred has to try so hard for the note, you are totally on his side. *Sigh* Real life should be that way.

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.
