Dear friend,
Now I understand a little more, forgive myself a little more, feel compelled to write a little more. I will write a letter to my young man self, explain it, offer advice that can't be followed then, and tell myself, It will be alright, trust me.
Please send my greetings and thanks to Seema Reza for me.

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.
