« Remembering Maxine Kumin [by Charles Coe] | Main | The Case of the Reluctant Snowflake [by Charles Coe] »

February 10, 2014


How did you know? My first choice is like Duke and then Penn but also Brown is in the mix except that they do not have "early admission," which is where my dad went (Columbia) but that was back when they didn't have girls which is what I'm um like am rofl. Do old men's penises get erect when they think? I mean of girls without their clothes on, such as I am. Thank you for your consideration. I am just like curious about old men such as you claim you are but we know. Better. Sincerely, Harriet G.(11th grade, Wake Island High School, but please don't print my last name).

Do you mean Essence Goldstein? My uncle, whose last name was common, so his mother (my grandmother Bella) came up with the unique first name.

Like a fool, I let her into my condo, and she began dropping jottings [insert name]

". . .an old man alone in / his underwear" is a truly arresting image.

Friendly reply to Donna: ". . . an old man alone in / his underwear like [insert name]" Ha! (Just playing!)

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.
