poetry by j matthew waters

catch and release


I am somebody else today
dressed in clothes
fitting unfamiliarly
sun shining upon me
somehow differently
than the day before
warm and inviting
and encouraging a slight
smile on my face

I am somebody else today
not the person
you met in passing
or shared a meal
or intimate moment
somehow changed entirely
perhaps for the last time
whether it be for the better
or for the worse
