Poetry: J. D. Nelson

J. D. Nelson
crow cardboard

languish and lobster (that puppet is the james of the corn)
the chicken of yarn is the pillow bird waiting for help

needing a blue suit to moon you
were workie workie worked rook

that napkin happens
mars is the breakfast

the face of the fremont world
come tusk rushing

to be the spider when I am a clown of the iron
wark work is the smart yeck of the standard

if you were a working worm
wolf now for the power eye

that letter of the x pillow
that leash of the sand spark

scoundrel was a poplar twig
a newt of the sometimes

chewing now for that bulb of friction

cracky crown was a gentlecloud
that seven of the ape is nine

the cave of the people
a morning of the huff

circle was a paw earth now
I was the legend of the corn

the rose was a law of the brain to get there
the solid oz of all time

that was the snork of the promise to land a head of the calling
the god face was a legend of the grass

soccer is the cheese ruffle
that tea is the steam of the bookends here with the rose of the eyeball

to glow with that bird
heaven is the light of the pea to soak with that arthur

a crushy time of the day
the ant and the elk

the mouse is the color of the grey sun

to see that the blanket is the key of the alpha to rood me a stereo
that could be the cackle and the lemon of the north

to learn of the canceled head and the lion
we can play the machine game now

this trash is the clue
complete with the centipede and the world cranks the hobart

smart chicken was hurt in the rodeo
life was a floating egg of the tune nugget

crass luggage to snow
should be the mopar earth to shamrock one

the king of the eye
to be the salt of the trudge
