poetry by j matthew waters

on the last day of christmas


it’s getting late she says
and I agree silently

lights turn on and off
flickering like christmas tree
inside new year’s eve

did you put that bird back
in the pear tree
she asks nonchalantly

I did indeed I reply
and fed them both
six ounces each of your favorite
chocolate porter

outside felines are screaming
after having witnessed
albino barn owl eyes
both of us smiling slightly
neither of us moving an inch





december two thousand seventeen
