chained to the speakers
by J. D. Nelson
in my fur-lined room:
do you think of cotton
candy & holding hands?

washing up in the
tidal pool before dinner:
woman of the pelicans,
daughter of the sea mist,
our red-haired guardian angel,
make it safe for men to be men
and cook meat on fire.

meanwhile, I digest
& think of tea,
not a cigarette.

care to join me
at the hip spot,
where a stray note
might escape?

(a little green parakeet
realizing that
there is no cage?)

slippery sandpaper licks
a little feather-head ready
& the little guy might as well be
a ripe banana now.

lick your chimp fingers later --
this is a story about the sea gal.

melted chocolate from a land called
Mexico -- here are some of
those olives you love so much.

imagine me, calling out your
name all night, with the sound
of my heart attack bleeding
through these speakers.

I paid someone a handsome sand
dollar to snap a shot of me in
axiom.

I'd rather live on the beach
than go through that again.

she left an extra blanket
on my doorstep. I have to finish
the portrait of the faceless man
for her birthday.

she says that she's going
to quit smoking. I haven't
even started yet.
