by J.D. Nelson
kliff, the baron of the market
the chain of the hearse
the scraping giraffe was the national outlaw
wired chuck, the name of the balance
hear that calm nun?
the young clown is a s-u-r-f word
the neighboring wolf
wrapped in the blanket of the noon
the wallet of the sandwich tick
the saint peter of the sea
the lard of love
win a lard lego
