poetry by j matthew waters

we regret to inform you

let it ring
don’t answer that

nobody’s home right now
especially now

outside it’s raining and sometimes
it seems the doorbell is ringing
but it’s just the rain
ringing in my ear

and that pounding
the pounding on the door
that’s just my head
repeatedly shouting
no no no don’t answer that
don’t you dare let anyone in

april two thousand fourteen
