poetry by j matthew waters

in search of november one

wishing and praying
for some things to change
not intending to look back
too far though
when mistakes happened often

sometimes I ponder the things
she used to tell me
about baseball games and
voodoo dolls
about false gods and how
to stay in the clear on the
cloudiest of october afternoons

thirty days yet to go
down that moonlit alley
where alien notions inside your head
contradict any fears you ever had
about entering the next dimension

october two thousand sixteen

    This is excellent.

  3. My emotions of November is closer to that of walking through mud… (but it’s great for writing poetry)
