poetry by j matthew waters

split second decisions

awakened in middle of night
iphone flashlight
shining on razor blade
and jump rope and
georgia peaches

walls surrounding
open windows
cushioning absorbent sounds
inviting walkers
and crawlers
anything flying
and/or broadcasting (around)

this is neither dream
nor exercise at exorcising demons
therefore a decision
must be made
and time is of the essence
