poetry by j matthew waters

out in the country

people ask me how she’s doing
I say I’ve no idea where she’s been
not since turning off the lights
and saying goodbye

people ask me where she’s hiding
I tell them I believe she’s in full sight
somewhere far from the city lights
her eyes most likely smiling

people ask me how I’m doing
I say I’m doing just fine
walking the streets at night
and singing a brand new song

april two thousand nineteen
