Three New Poems by J D. Nelson

 



why is there no world in the book?

 

to know why a bumblebee is the free coin

the lost hammer is the apple of the worried lamp

 

what is the sun chime doing in the night atrium

that is the layer of the clock cushion so sit down

 

the cloud is no more than the purple listener

and that means a marksman will go hungry

 

please register your clack and quack

to win the battle when there is none


 

is that you humming?

 

earth is no ways aways

happy beeper to make a language

 

the fonzie donnie

laughing at the park signage

 

the hummus clownsicle

you need a tree to start

 

a surge of fruit for the penance ritual

the hen’s pink leather eggs


 

like smart a-macks that period o’ the text

 

(w

indow)

 

window

smith ixsth syruP

 

the coin nab (one of the world)

h.w. chape of the unne

 

it was a tuck or truck

a bead or bread

 

the bath is the miracle

michelob narnia is the grain

 

ah, the bland landing

cookit, look!
