poetry by j matthew waters

go on


satan sat poised and silent
listening to the dead man’s plea
nodding like a disinterested psychiatrist
who magnanimously extended the session
so the injured soul could recount
all the right reasons
for distrusting the existence
of life after death

  1. Your voice is a gift x

  2. I REALLY LIKE YOUR POETRY, THE WORDS ARE DEEP AND TO ME MEAN A LOT. KINDA STUFF THAT MAKES ONE ASK THE QUESTION “WHAT DID HE MEAN BY THAT” BUT YOUR VOICE JUST MAKES IT ALL THE BETTER. GIVES YOUR WORK THAT EXTRA IMPH. THEY ARE REALLY SHORT WITH SO MUCH POWER BEHIND THEM.
