J. D. Nelson

the millipede makes its midnight run

my hat is a little
more crooked &
I've noticed the
high number.

I gave a $ to a woman
who needed it for rabies shots —
she was attacked by "two bears"
& two smaller fanged mammals.

      one two three
why are you
      angry w/ me? (ARRRRGHH)
join me tonight
(it's a full moon)
      (& an eclipse, says Bo)
a remedy for your
starship ailment
blinking green &

under a hazy No. Carolina sky,
holding flowers —

creatures? I shout
exclamation points
in the dark.
      underground violet fish

The Letters H.B.T.

Holding a red cup
of yellow marbles,
laughing at the expense
of the hooded jackals
in the back of row "M" —

"M" is for "Mustard",
good for yellow snow,
monkey teeth
& scarab noodles
with golden hope.

The Golden Boots Have Arrived

The rodent yelped
& opened the screen door.

Thirty more flies
entered the bubble.

The eggs
are incredible.

This is the No. 7 card —

take it up
to the rat
on the roof.
