poetry by j matthew waters

see how they run


I imagine you’re sleepwalking
while I’m intermittently dreaming
your whitish curly haired lap dog
dressed in holiday sweater
leashed and pleading to go outside
to greet rising curved moon

it’s another mid-winter night
and I roam from room to room
trying to track you down
but as usual you’re one step ahead
sometimes disguised
as three blind mice
other times the carving knife

  1. OMG. This is the cutest thing ever … until the last line, of course.

    I love this:
    “your whitish curly haired lap dog
    dressed in holiday sweater”

  2. It’s like reading Shakespeare.. just the poetry way

  3. and here I’m hearing “lady madonna”
