poetry by j matthew waters

imperfect papers

when they wired this one
there was no ground
it was either lights on
or lights out

she told me if I wanted
to wait another week
she was expecting
a new delivery

shaking my head
I explained how I needed
to move on after
losing Rosie last month

buckling her replacement
into my hatchback
I hoped to regain
what efficiency I had lost
