A delight, Terry.

Thanks for concocting a true nostalgia sweet as the buzz of a Seven-and-Seven that was the drink of choice of the uncles -- but still slipping in those dashes of signature Winchian wry (excuse the pun). Like bitters,they balance nostalgia back into its true complexity, particularly at the end:
I believed in everything: Jesus our Lord, Santa
our magic benefactor, my parents the immortal source
of the ongoing celebration that could never end.

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.
