« Happy Birthday Robert Frost | Main | Happy Birthday Dorothea Lasky [by Anthony Madrid via facebook] »

March 26, 2013


I love your indepth discussion on how the mind weaves impressions of landscape and experience to paint visions of the self struggling to survive in the world through the metaphorical process of connecting concrete images to the ideal concepts we cherish in a search for meaning so each individual can map their route through the meaningless of life to survival and possibly even paradise in a moment of pleasure.

The night they took his corpse out
of the house,
I remember the neighbors staring
and how his belly rose
under the white sheet.

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.
