Fred Wah
Neck Hold

cement to the source
dances over the top of the forms
looking for the chemistry, clouds
covert at the spring
creek pipe a little rusty
within the back eddy all possibility
lake a Newfoundland of roots
cellar one log
cellar two rock
cellar three concrete
cellar four ties
walls get up plumb
the clear track through to the peppermint tea
this pour has the hum of a plane overhead
dreamt a good mix five or six to two
not always back to the body and its neck
la cort de zone
maybe not just the cable of thought
would hold as one a bird
