poetry by j matthew waters

standing in line with mister jimmy

I’ve been self-prescribing for so long
beginning to believe I’m an expert
in any field

apothecary shop across the street
has been thriving for nearly
a century now
modestly contributing to the local economy
providing products we’ve
come to know and love
since the beginning of time

I want our love to last forever
so I keep asking myself
what shall we take next time
our lives seem to be separating

  1. I will always fall in love with an apothecary poem. 🙂

    From the title, I can only imagine Jimmy Dean sausage. 😛
