I'm not familiar with Brittany Perham's work. Thank you for introducing her here. (And now I'm hungry.)

I can't determine the tone of the Perham poem. Is it intended to be spoken with clenched teeth, like Plath's "Daddy" poem?

Hi Marilyn,

That's my fault, since I didn't post the entire poem. Its tone is one of hurt and rejection. That's how I read it. I hope she'll reply if I'm off base. (I got her permission to post it.)

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.
