Hi Ravi,
I am touched especially by this statement you made: "Clearly poetry still retains its primal power to connect us to one another and to stand firm in the face of those forces that would conspire to silence us." Amen to that. Thanks for your post. Much food for thought on a foggy Monday morning.

Thanks Lisa! I think it's important to agitate on behalf of those without a voice, however we can. Glad to hear your thoughts.

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.
