Is this a kind of found poem? I think we need more of this kind of verse in contemporary poetry. Thanks for posting.

Awful, sad, and much too true.

Thank you for the comments. It seems to me sometimes that the news speaks for itself, very little editing needed to elevate it into a form of testimony.

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"

in the corner

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.
