Tuesday poem #100 : N.W. Lea : EASTERS POEMS


Was it an attempt
to bolster a thin mood?

Was it an extension
of the ego (an extended arm)?

Little worlds unfold:
tiny trinkets in the understory.


Bless sacrifice. Its
viscose rhythm. Its
lump sum love.

N.W. Lea lives and writes in Ottawa. He is the author of three chapbooks, light years (above/ground press, 2006), Actual Girl (The Emergency Response Unit, 2011) and Present! (above/ground press, 2013), as well as the full-length collection, Everything is Movies (Chaudiere Books, 2007). His second collection, Understander, appears this spring, also with Chaudiere Books.
