poetry by j matthew waters

crouching in the outer limits

the first snow has come and gone
and I’ve nothing to show for it
except for a newly purchased spark plug
I’ve yet to replace in my snow blower

the first snow came and went
and I’ve yet to complete my autumn chores
simply because (once again) climate
change has caught me off guard

the first snow is certain to come
unpredictable like a lion
crouching in the outer limits
patiently waiting for a little something

november two thousand nineteen

  1. The signs of our first snow and hard freeze has finally melted away. I’m not sure how I feel about that.
