Poetry from J.D. Nelson

February first
peanut butter sandwiches
for dinner tonight


weary of winter
my tongue goes to the space where
my teeth used to be


I’ve just missed the bus
I can walk home by the time
the next one arrives

  1. Your short verse brings to mind my life in a grim river town fifty years ago, eating peanut butter and generic Spam and bottled of Night Train Express or Ripple to see me through the night. Good poem.
