Heidi Czerwiec: Nervous Systems

Congratulations to our poetry editor (and friend Heidi Czerwiec) for her award winning essay “Nervous Systems.” It won first prize in the Baltimore Review’s competition for works on the body. Go read it here.

Her poem explores the complex relationships with our body’s most-mysterious nervous system and the birth mother of Heidi’s son. The poetic style adds a sense of specificity without robbing her words of any lyrical elegance. Just go read it (and the other contest winners too!).
