poetry by j matthew waters

don’t let the world bring you down

I owe someone a call
a friend from yesterday
catch up to speed as they say
repeating everything is fine
and bending other lies

who are you again
listening until the end of the time
gradually second-guessing
old-school acquaintance
from modern day adversary

don’t we all end up
in the same place in the end
or is that just another untruth
handed down from
one conversation to the next

a simple dial tone seques
into a busy signal
leaving me somewhat amused
convinced anything said
was a matter of recorded time

october two thousand nineteen
