steel briar entombed in mortar
twisted frame beneath cement
petrified quick hedge dead
rebar roots clawing dirt
wrapping around ancient bones
crushed under the weight [ … ]

Nervous System
by N.W. Lea

Here,

within the mood,
night wrestles itself
to the known
ground.

I’m amazed
at my doubts: stomachal.

Ginger is a nonstarter …
there’ll be no solace tonight
for the wordy.

The yes-spectrum
is broad, yes,
but totally dependent
upon ignition.

One argues
that everything is second
-hand, a pedestrian
bargain. Rummage

in the pitch
toque.
