My Real Machine Name

J D Nelson

In the first year of
the first name of
the first Yates:

A candid feature
within the
machine data.

(A drop of hot sauce
in the donut shop)

Make up your minds,
Nice money, a bowl of
goodness noodles --

bawling duckies
and noodle soup.

News tacos, something
at the edge of the shadow --

I’m a hinge
in a bucket
of metal parts.

A minute in this kind of sun
will melt your skin --

a hanging
wouldn’t surprise
these people --

they’ve been witness
to taco seasonings.

We have the bag
of understanding.
