new from above/ground press: Nervous System, by N.W. Lea

Nervous System
by N.W. Lea
$4

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.
