poetry by j matthew waters

catching the last train out of town


I can’t catch my breath
nor can I see
what is it you’ve done to me

I’ve not had a cigarette
in over a century
but oh my how I still crave them

I once believed you taught me
all there is to know
but you proved me wrong (again)
by setting me free

there’s nothing quite like
catching the last train out of town
waning gibbous arising

long ago you said I’m only human
but now we both know
there’s more to this story
