Thank you for this post. My favorite Rilke word: "terror." My favorite line here, about the lovers: "You hold each other. Where is your proof?" I love Rilke -- especially the Rilke of the Duino Elegies and the Sonnets to Orpheus -- though there are few poets I'd less like to be like. (Auden called him the Santa Claus of loneliness.) I believe that Rilke was waiting for that glorious moment of inspiration like a monk in a monastery of the imagination.

Amy -

Your father would have been proud.

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.
