J D Nelson - five poems

1 a waffling brain for beedo

stark herring completes the hum
that ferret skull and now a larger denim cod

a book now
a lunch special

pow was a brand new pocket
and it made a sound like a dull
watermelon ghost cramping a wheelie

the vacuumed ghost
why don’t the huh

2 ten times you junco fidgeters

blip dot yes is a fleeting hoof of the governance
one of the chain sisters is using the gum now

rinsing like a well-o
the pock is lifting

and we graft the yes to the no
to stunt up the heady with one mile of wispy

the seed person with the variable goose
well aren’t we a coy universe

3 talk through the waterfall

we get through the rat chant using the upper hair method
sledge llama up one building to secure a wallop

fishing for furniture
the moment of omelette

scuba nerf ankle joe
at war with a duck

worse than an apple machine
hind pig could get better at this

4 siren toque was a chimp stagnant

to establish a colony of ants in the air
now a standard fish

hammer fish
that old head

a ghost in the sink
a corduroy tree

hmm making earth noises

5 the flexing ham to sugar us with roses

better with electricity
time to get the toast

a wizard of blended forest
the bandit cooking pasta

the candy club of one riff
whitening toothpaste

to know a vole
a poisonous finger talking
