poetry by j matthew waters

repairing what may be broken

she swore she would give it all up
the interconnectedness
of a fragmented world
projected in tid bits & slices of emotion
that somehow a third eye
is supposed to make whole

nobody believed she could achieve
such an improbable feat
after so many autobiographical
ups and downs of words and images
projected seemingly effortlessly
for all the world to love

how she managed to give it all up
remains a mystery of
counterintuitive discretion
leaving a stunned majority who once
thought they knew her so well
with unanswerable questions

may two thousand nineteen
