poetry by j matthew waters

naturally incognito

meanwhile I’m staying underground
practicing one line after the next
just in case I get called into court

I found myself some used dress shoes
decided to stash the boots I copped
a few weeks before winter set in

for those who care to know
my lady left me weeks ago
she was crazy and demanded
too much of my money in exchange
for not enough attention

word has it new counterfeiter arrived
is setting up shop somewhere downtown
and something tells me he just
may need an apprentice

anticipating sunrise will be shedding
light on third and third
I flip through my wallet like a
moving picture show
taking my time randomly picking
who I should be today

february two thousand eighteen
