Blanket Bombs Descend

Ghost flights piloted by evil men
Flying overhead
More young soldiers sent to war
En route to join the dead

I Can’t Wait To Drop My Trousers

Three hours into our date
And many cocktails later
I’m in an utterly desperate state
With sensations growing greater

A Muse

I remember you saying
I was your muse
And I remember being rather
Amused

Sticky Fingers

Tongue licking
Bottom to top
Fingers sticking
From every drop

Fact

Hearts don’t always do the same
When limbs intertwine

But for now I think you’re lovely

Max Reif 26 February 2006

On the day I'm writing this, February 26,2006, Lea has 20 poems posted, many of them short. The longer ones, I believe, are all, or almost all, in rhymed stanzas (not generally *my* favorite cup of tea) . That should not keep you from reading her poems. Among these are some of the most brilliant lines I have ever seen! As I wrote under one of Lea's, 'You are only 27, and you've already written things as good or better than Dorothy Parker, the 'bard-ess' of barbed, rhymed verse.' There is a haiku among these 20, that says as much as many whole books! Lea has a brilliant mind and a wonderful disregard for the 'polite' and the conventional. I harbor a wish-it may be completely irrelevant to Lea's intuition, in which case she should not follow it-to also see how this wonderful mind would unfold itself in completely unfettered, free verse, and even prose stories and essays.
