poetry by j matthew waters

catch me if you can

the bird in the stream
loves to scream at midnight
when deep in her sleep

she dreams of elegant legs
to-die-for tail feathers
and a graceful neckline

no longer interested in
fly-by-night playboys
she catches her limit
before the rooster’s crow

august two thousand thirteen
