poetry by j matthew waters

ivory box full of dreams

sun surely needs you
pale in cheek you seem to be
lose the umbrella

dream versus fake world
tap tap tap on your shoulder
wake up morpheus

quiver of arrows
sneaking around a rainbow
aiming for the moon

opiates prescribed
addiction is sure to come
endless nights awake

november two thousand seventeen
