Subtle Tory, to fold and yet thereby your richer hand indemnify.

Judy Sherman wrote to me:

“Hello from Troy, where the sacking is going well.”

(The Troy Savings Bank has found new life as one of the best recording venues in the country.)

I wrote her back:

“I suppose the sacking of Troy was old-fashioned form of withdrawal.”

Which led to my ode on a folded bridge hand.
