Three Fantastic Unpublished Poems by J. D. Nelson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
