poetry by j matthew waters

from outside the canopy

from what I remember a tire swung
from the rafters from inside the barn
the motion putting me to sleep
safely wrapped and held in arms
I loved but would not know

the difference between reality
and dreams remain indistinguishable
from the night or morning lights
arms swinging from the canopy
rocking me endlessly to sleep

february two thousand fifteen

    I loved but would not know” is so incredibly sad
