poetry by j matthew waters

under dual control

nobody can seem to find the other
key to the harry potter room

it’s been like this for decades
and probably much longer
since only a handful of the living
have actually stepped foot inside
none of whom have been able
to communicate ever since

what was once an embarrassment
in the wonderful world of wizardry
has since become an afterthought
old news and stale bread
crumbled into pieces by way of
its own publicity

and those conspiracy theories
popping up when least expected
they should certainly be considered
but buyer beware
lest you too become trapped inside

september two thousand seventeen
