Poem on a Sonnet

A good deal of fundamental religion in Mr. McRae's thoughts.

Might it not be easier to simply address the Creator and make the plea directly rather than obliquely.

The devil and the life force both untrammeled make difficult bedfellows.

Enlightenment is worthy of principled effort without steady gauging.

A Sonnet With Words You Have To Ignore - is made up of words and only words make it up.

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
