poetry by j matthew waters

living for tomorrow

tomorrow I shall become one with the spade
and move half the black-eyed susans
from the garden to behind the fence
long before they go to seed

tomorrow I shall make a list
and commit to memory what else
needs to be done before the season ends

tomorrow I shall learn to live again
ridding myself of past mistakes and failures
forgiving myself as well as my enemies
a simple reminder how all lives still matter
