J.D. Nelson – 1 poem

In the age of computer toes

No king of the mountain
no baseball card puzzle

people straining to see the earth and its moon
arrowhead and zither

the creatures wither and moan
the ocean is ghost white now

earth the space planet
green martian gold

fritz your carp
grape that snazz.
