poetry by j matthew waters

especially ever since


you cried and I don’t know why
and suddenly a rainbow
appeared and we toasted
to everything unexpected

I cried and I don’t know why
things happen like they do
finding myself accidentally alone
tossing a salad and tearing
cold chicken with my hands

the rain barrel’s been near empty
for half a summer now
and I’m beginning to wonder
if autumn will ever arrive
before winter settles in



august two thousand fifteen
