poetry by j matthew waters

she comes from within

chain smoking and
having pie for lunch
my lovely tour guide
never stops talking

there are others
vying for her attention
her knowledge of the land
and the lore it contains

the fruit of the vine
grows year ‘round here
the mountainous region
much older than the hills

the bakery at the next stop
sells cherry pie slices
for 500 drachmas
I place my order for two

motivation can be instilled
she would often say
but true inspiration
she must come from within

december two thousand sixteen

  1. Pie for breakfast here. I’m that girl.

  2. Oh I love your pie loving angel – she is the best kind of guardian angel to have!

  3. Great, love the title too… a desire not mentioned.
