Delightful, Kate...BBrown

These tennis readings are brilliant! I especially love the line in the last poem, "in moonlight: the lines glow,/ which for many have been the only lines / of justice."
I will have to rethink what my failure to ever serve the ball over the net and play a full game actually signifies!

Outstanding post. Thank you. DL

All I ever do is swoon over, Kate Daniels!

Delightful! I couldn't help but think of the psychotherapy/poetry connection (a coupling dear to your heart)and the couple in my office yesterday after reading your post.There were overheads, slams, passing shots, cries of "foul!" and one competitor stalking off the court, enraged.

Oh goody! A week-long feast on the always arresting contents of your mind. Delicious first course. XX

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.
