poetry by j matthew waters

admired by the gods I wish to be


turning nothing into something
without words or paint or music
but simply by willing it so
now that’s a feat worthy of the gods

how can I even try to do the same
in my own little space and time
redesigning recurring nightmares
or reworking age old fairy tales

this is not the first time I’ve talked
myself into believing in the past
one in which I was a lesser god
still learning how to reinvent

perhaps next time I will arise
from beneath the very earth herself
eventually abloom in full color
admired by the gods I wish to be
