Poetry by J.D. Nelson : A Weapon of the Sphinx Ant

sweet peep is a clear way to answer the phone
earth knows why we do this
the klee claw will surprise you!
a galactic unit of the fleeting scrub
now we may sense the beyond
a machine couldn’t have done anything
that machine knew the pattern by heart

J. D. Nelson (b. 1971) experiments with words in his subterranean laboratory. His poetry has
appeared in many small press publications, worldwide, since 2002. He is the author of several
collections of poetry, including Cinderella City (The Red Ceilings Press, 2012). His first full-
length collection, entitled In Ghostly Onehead, is slated for a 2021 release by mOnocle-Lash
Anti-Press. His work has recently appeared in E·ratio, Maintenant, Otoliths, BlazeVOX, and
