poetry by j matthew waters

next train arrives on tuesday

it got dark all of a sudden
and I’m not talking due to any
daylight savings time

I’ve been saving all my life
and look where it’s got me

but of course nobody expected
me to go anywhere
at least not to frankfurt or athens
or modern day memphis

I’ve done hitched a
ride on many a train
but I’m not about to hop on one
engineered by any fool on the hill

november two thousand seventeen
