J. D. Nelson

bull is out there in aspirin pants

hello today
is my birthday

the sun’s fingers
the night
               in the morning

lake water all
over the ants

earth has weird birds


Is the machine making it worse?

               Give me lion yellow, please.

               Is that the same as safari yellow?

               Yes, I think so.

voice over internerf poem

               I am the frog in the sink
               in the grink

               I am the eye of the tree
               I can see

but I can’t swim in space —
learn how & win medals

break-in / nature poem

forget what the machine makes me say


even rock and roll people like cake

These poems are evocative and well crafted. So many impressions with so few words. Say it!
