Poetry from J.D. Nelson


 the bulletin board’s nice eye
 the carp was a grant of the fist
 that face is the iron
 the lean scope was a charm
 that needle was an eye to laugh
 to learn of the laughing hook
 that could be the name of thy building
 that wood is the pooh
 my rose is a penny laser
 the bright hammond of the clouds
             a rose of the walking head
 a merit of the gallon
                         the cruising head
 is the sun a school?
 the brain is the charcoal of the iron
 the losing head is the northern huck of the filament
             the northern hum of the air
 ah knew bat
 to be the featured wool in the stove of the floral earth
 the whipping hum is the light of the beryl
 the dusk in the circle of the sherry
 shark marbles!
 pit pip that lock of the laser maid
 the cherished ankle
 the rose of the mica
 the ticking of the feathered serpent
 the choral oink of the wandering hum
 the light of the fresno bacon
 that alpha is the boat of the marble
 to can a clark of the eel

  1. Fascinating pieces; I have never encountered a poem by J.D. Nelson that did not at once intrigue and captivate. Thank you for these. Cannot wait for the above mentioned full-length collection.
