poetry by j matthew waters

open windows

and so it seems every day is saturday
probably in the middle of may
downtown the farmers’ market’s abuzz
like a highly functional beehive

the children love to go downtown
where angels hang out in highrises
being seen by those who can see
otherwise merely open windows

may two thousand seventeen

    I love that closing image — City of Angels is one of my favorite movies.

  3. Are that the fallen angels?
