poetry by j matthew waters

interview with a ragamuffin


the blues I understand so much more
than any shade of black or white


what are you doing I ask the little girl
who appeared out of thin air
she answers without looking up
all the time focusing on a world
expanding in colors without words

I stood there stunned for a moment
as if I was the subject
but then awoke and moved on
neither mesmerized nor alert
uncertain what she had uttered



march two thousand seventeen
