poetry by j matthew waters

gas powered chainsaw

it takes some doing getting the motor going
pulling the cord countless times
fits and starts and sputtering dead
once and for all humming along
the little devil screaming and screeching
its angry teeth having its way with the
trunk of the fifteen foot crabapple
efficiently felling it straight to the earth

november two thousand nineteen
