Three Poems


J. D. Nelson





thanks for eating my knee



in the land of the freedom eagle

the people gnaw on the earth


in the garden of bottles

we wander about looking for the world


we see the james of the grand jowling

we see the green embers


yarn in the soup to feed the kittens

trigger the horse is a pumpkin of life





that could explain the camera lozenge



and now the hen will reside in the castle with the queen

and that tale shall be known as merrywood


                                      the coupon good for a waterfall

the measure will be the voice of the common bounce


the hammer in the dirt to balance the carpenter yarn


couch was a laser being

         across the table now a jetty





the need to know us in the air



scoopy moon dupe was a computer

the stupid fun was a bunch of numbers


credible noun hassle

would you like a cup of the voolie voo


wild head was a kick out

a white size rex the coot layer


the cloud is the hair in my eye

the western lentils exceed my reach
