poetry by j matthew waters

that someone else


for ten seconds I sat there
dumbfounded
the image so clear in my mind
what I was going to do
who I was going to be
but then out of nowhere
all clarity left my memory
and for ten seconds I sat there
perplexed how I lost the vision
or the means to flip back on the light

for a moment I nearly cried
and another ten seconds later
I became myself again


january two thousand fifteen
