poetry by j matthew waters

give me some rope


boxer in training jumping
wrists turning
as quick as feet
flashing
slashing
accelerating

boy scout wannabe
learning to tie new knots
manipulating with tongue
stuck out
twisting
shouting
unraveling

hangman’s noose
more powerful than a firm
handshake
unnerved and intent on
preventing
deliverance
to the promised land



november two thousand sixteen
