« Bill Hayward's "the human bible" exhibit at the Martin Art Gallery, Muhlenberg College, Allentown, PA. October 16-November 9 | Main | Dan Nester Clues Us In on the Incredible Sestina Anthology »

October 14, 2013


How well I remember those days. Before you got the gig, we'd reserve time at Le Select or the Rond-Point or wherever and solve Will Weng's puzzle. He favored "Haile --- " as a clue and we were highly delighted. And the ball scores, which we got 24-36 hours after the fact. And the occasional pieces originating from the Paris offices: there was one on Mal Waldron, who used to accompany Billie Holiday and was now living in Paris. In the photo above, is that you posing with Jean Seberg? Did you take her to the Rosebud for jazz and chili?

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.
