« Late Summer Reading (part 2): Rosie Schaap's Drinking with Men [by Moira Egan] | Main | Sonnet Xbox [by Laura Orem] »

August 16, 2013


Sarah, thanks for memorializing your reactions and memories for all of us to share and remind us for a time of our own origin story. The older we get the more remote these feelings seem, until we read about them. Hong Kong has changed so much since we were little.

i would submit that the "worship, burn and smoke" of your "words" are more powerful and efficient than any 3D paper constructions...

there must be much dancing and joy on Hollywood Road and all the roads when the ancestors take possession of your words...

a wonderful read....

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.
