New Poetry by Rodney Nelson

Harder Times

a gray-and-white photograph
of woods that were gray and white
in an olden November
dark gray of tree shadow and
two men in dark not smiling
not having to squint too hard

one with a rifle in hand
a wried dead buck on the ground
the other with a mustache
a gray-and-white November
in the quiet of drought time

dark-gray November of want

- Rodney Nelson 2015

Rodney Nelson worked as a copy editor in the Southwest and now lives in the northern Great Plains. He recently published a chapbook.
