poetry by j matthew waters

Turn the Page

This blank white page
is about to be changed
is about to be creased
and bent in ways
never before imagined.

At the mercy
of folds and reversals
this piece of paper
takes on various shapes
such as triangles and trapezoids
and quadrilaterals
in the end resembling
some sort of
prehistoric creature
with bad intentions.

  1. I thought this was going to be one thing, then it was another–just like the paper. I liked this.
