« Meet the Press: Nin Andrews in Conversation with Bruce Covey, Editor of Coconut Books | Main | Contemporary Canadian Poetry [by Eduardo C. Corral] »

May 04, 2014


I haven't read any poetry for a while until very recently - I think I have a reluctance from school days when we were forced to enjoy poetry, well clearly you cannot be forced into enjoying anything and I would think that is not what any poet would want.
However teachers are long gone and I now find I do like it. School creates such bad habits sometimes! Quite frustrating really.

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.
