The Nerve System
[by S. David] [art by Logan Hicks]

So I’m down again
Here in the underbelly
Of the city the nerve
System and it was
Everyday the same
Thing back then
The Brighton to
The Canarsie line
And school high
School First Avenue
And my friends coming
From all over most
Getting off Union
Square molecules
Traveling to the brain
High school brain trust
And we earned it
Exciting the city number
One years of reputation
Traveling with white
Blue collar workers daily
But we were the brain
Trust of the nerve
System riding the train
The subway that made
New York one and
Number one

  1. I really love this one! It's amazing,.. So strong and so powerful, and the rhythm somehow replicates the strokes of light and dark in this photo..So graphical and so sharp.. !
