Thanks, Farid and Laura. Both really thoughtful contributions, & I'm glad to know them.

brilliant, Ailish Hopper. And the Rich quote...yes, she was so much about that concept of becoming conscious. So hard to wrap one's mind around the brutality inside that becoming. thank you for a thoughtful post.

Radio

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

THE RULE OF THUMB
by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
