Regarding Levine: Tomas Q. Morin and I are pleased to announce that our co-edited anthology of essays Coming Close: Poets Pay Tribute to Philip Levine as Teacher and Mentor will be published in early 2013 by Prairie Lights Books, an imprint of the University of Iowa Press. The anthology gathers contributions from over 40 of Phil's former students and mentees and ranges across nearly 50 years of Phil's long teaching career.

Yay, Ms. Trethewey!

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.
