poetry by j matthew waters

small miracles

cemetery trees understand you more than
any mind reader ever possibly could

we canceled our vacation plans and instead
spent the weekend planting evergreens

chapel in the field is lit by candlelight
little women on their knees counting beads

I remember this place from once upon a time
and something tells me so should you

july two thousand eighteen
