Ayaz Daryl Nielsen- A Poem

 adventures with scarecrow

garden scarecrow
underneath the coveralls
grandma’s corset

early morning light
isn’t back yet

somebody has given 
an adult diaper

late autumn wind
giving scarecrow my 
old winter jacket

and just what nationality
do you think you are?

more padding 
for skinny legs

pants down
scattered about
used prophylactics

always has been
grandfather crow’s
best friend
