Three Fantastic Unpublished Poems by J. D. Nelson


the neon brain is the james e. webb of the parallel room


I was a fox, the colour and taste of paint

I was the light of the prime apple


to feel that wonder is the game of the welp


miracle mungo


to learn of the peas

help is the name of the feather


I was the lake

I cloned a coke machine


a bruised rock is the shame of the planet

the broom is the standard


the cork lime seventh is the m-jot owl


the cardboard rabbit is my favourite

we’ve opened a news hole in the atmosphere


this lacquer jack is the colonel

when I am the salad of the same


I am the science of the wind

this angel could be the western apple


I was the king of the likeness

I recommend saturn as a frostmaker


the older ringwald was a scion

when we do, there will be a noun

the secret hand of the nile


I was in the web

formed in a summer bath


the shamrock of the coloring book

the blanket is the shape of the sound


I was in the room with a cool guff

my heart was three miles wide


golden enough

the shapes of the clouds here


at midnight

midlight will be legal
