Newsprint, a container for words.  For fish and chips.  How versatile.   How practical.
One of the goals in poetry is not to have greasy words.  Suggestive, yes; greasy no.  Think about this the next time you order fish and chips.

  1. A rusty trough holds back the musk
    of leaves rotting slowly

    the hard corners of the white trellis
    leaves eaten, living out their lace on trees

    what to do with quiet nights
    the intrusion of crickets

    a stale hum of memory
    before bedtime
