poetry by j matthew waters

forever green

sitting in the dark
watching cars pass by
snow quietly falling
not a star in sight

everything’s unplugged
sound of winter settles in
pulsating candlelight
casting shadows on walls
touching rags and bones

other world sleeps upstairs
while down below you
redraw black & white dreams
subtracting out the bad
adding new color
until every ornament
collected throughout the years
is perfectly placed
on your imaginary tree
