Jennifer Nelson


summer answers with a chainsaw no a circle jerk
of slow and rusty chainsaws try
to be the opposite of birds the children sweet
droolbags stopped the village streets and lo

a lamb born in the castle with the head of a castle
the nursery full of squirmy towers no children
but quiet melters into drool
then the enclosed garden

the unicorn’ll tell you shaving horn’s like shaving teeth
your pretty shard path
totally worth it
like chewing totally worth it

like if you’re ready to be naked
insert your pretty brain, I’ll break it

Jennifer Nelson writes about Northern Renaissance art, and maintains a blog of speculative and parodic art history at She currently lives in Brooklyn.
