poetry by j matthew waters

hello how are you

she had it so her cell rang
like an old fashioned telephone
kind you’d find on carol burnett

she lost it in the cushions last night
and we found it long after she was gone

don’t pick that up he said
it’s probably that bitch again

if it’s that bitch wouldn’t she just text

yes I suppose she would
but don’t pick it up anyway
she’s not taking any more calls

august two thousand seventeen
