poetry by j matthew waters

where your life may lead you

walls covered in chalk
brilliant stories of the day displayed
by way of collective determination

black and white illusions evolve into
colors bolder than daredevils
expressions distorted and magnified
bricks quietly chirping among themselves
mortar becoming perches for little birds

that larger than life mirror on the wall
wants to be a window to your soul
begs for you to pause and take a look
at the very least consider what’s inside

    Life is like a piece of art there’s always those pieces that look out of place

    Like a sudden wind, sweeping into my life and scattering pieces of me everywhere.
