Three Poems
by Daniel Ehlers

SHAPES

childhood days
needing little thought structure
or concept at all

love
lovely dementia

i might remember it
as a desert

something on television
when i was eleven
had
me and
the neighborhood psychos too
out on our
knees
driveways late

and
drawing bermuda triangles
with chalk rock

it remains
foggy
as to why

but
theres some theories



IVE BEEN DRINKING

type writer
begging at my feet

"get off bitch!"

and i kick it
slam it opposite

"oh shit sorry!"



SCABBED

you dont eat clouds
not like that
what you do is
jump straight up

and its best to inhale a cloud

not for geeked reasons or anything

but romance
modern romance is fleeting
ran from the dog
ankle bleeding



About the author:
dan ehls was 23 years old before he was found drowned.
his will asked to be cremated and ashes spread on the moon.
sadly that didnt happen but heres some of his poetries
