poetry by j matthew waters

blurry eyes and right angles

I notice the water pail ornament
hanging on the wall
is crooked
and I mean by a lot

it’s crooked I say out loud

what’s crooked she shouts back

that red white and blue water pail I say
pointing at the wall

you’re crazy she says
she’s as true and blue as she’s ever been

may two thousand seventeen
