Here,within the mood,night wrestles itselfto the knownground.I’m amazedat my doubts: stomachal.Ginger is a nonstarter ...there’ll be no solace tonightfor the wordy.The yes-spectrumis broad, yes,but totally dependentupon ignition.One arguesthat everything is second-hand, a pedestrianbargain. Rummagein the pitchtoque.
