3 new poems from J.D. Nelson

cocoa (a packet of the boils)

boiling so
I’ve broken the milk

the echoing snorts
the puppet lamprey

this is the breaking code
a lantern to annoy

milk box, I said
too green of a milk

in the nearby wood with the jutes

marbles, ok?
a shooter!

on the corner with the oranges
the neighbor with the power

             onion lemur
             on my face

            lands of reason
            we dine here

controlling the roses
the dada fish

the frost of the forest

in the beginning was the big gulp

I was golden
away from the rice dream

I had been cooking ham
I heard the hum of seven scepters

mars was the boise
the blue gatorade rug

            I slicked back my hair
            like jon “bowzer” bauman

            I used bacon grease from a coffee cup in the fridge
            & was sent home from school with a note
