You have a lot of nerve! Within your brain, spine, your body, networks of fibers transmit impulses, motion and feeling. Sometimes, too, you hit a raw nerve, suffer an attack of nerves or lose your nerve. Nerves are networks for information, physical, digital and social. Nerves are the veins in a leaf or an insect’s wing. Nerves represent guts and bravado; you need them to take the plunge or to offend with impudence. Send us your poems on the theme “nerve” and be considered for publication in the 2014 poetry edition of Writers in the Attic.
