poetry by j matthew waters

stolen ‘67 chevrolet

something fresh on my mind
recent like autumn rain
tugging at my inner thoughts
speeding down route sixty-nine
southbound past quapaw

gracie’s reclined in back seat
strumming her ukelele
singing arlo guthrie songs
her long brown hair in
constant state of flux

oklahoma welcomes you
I kept repeating to myself
reassuring gracie
there’s no need to worry
for soon we’ll be in miami

october two thousand eighteen
