« Monday Comic by Nin Andrews | Main | Burning Down the Forest, Like Thoreau, and Poets Eating Poets [by Nick Courtright] »

April 15, 2014


No fool like an A pril Fool, David. It's about time someone came clean about the pestilent folks on Wall Street, esp. Rubella, of whom my mother warned me early on -- No Volkswagens, no German measles for you, boychick!

"Now let's start over. Was there any truth at all in that wild tale you've just told me?" asked Spade.

Brigid plucked at her dress. "Some,"she said. Then she lolled her head over toward Spade, and sighed, "Not much"--as if he'd won, and she was finally revealing something important.

You are, Spade thought, just not what you think.

As Calvin Coolidge Julius Caesar Tuskahoma McLish might have said: you're right.

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.
