poetry by j matthew waters

old records off the shelf

so many songs about saturday night
up and down the radio dial
forever cast into eternity
thanks to artistry and antigravity

and there you are behind the curtain
hairbrush in your hand
belting out your favorite songs
younger siblings doubting your sanity

may two thousand eighteen

  1. I think it was my younger sibling singing like this when I was a kid.
