poetry by j matthew waters

white dove

mother will never die
and i will always remain the child
falling fast asleep to a sound
repetitiously opposing the light

it’s not like
she didn’t know what was best for me
but purposely stopped feeding me
and released me to the sky

lifting her arms up high
cupped hands slowly open
little wings quick at the chance to fly
absorbing all the outside repetition
memorized from within

may two thousand seventeen
