poetry by j matthew waters

diamonds in your eyes

there is color behind those clouds
behold and open your eyes
there’s much more to discover
beyond this black & white world

do not cry moonchild of mine
unfold your palms from your eyes
[and even though you cannot see]
soon you’ll learn to read & write

I’ve described myself to you
in so many words and phrases
and yet you ask to touch my face
telling me to keep quiet for a minute

at least there’s color in my voice
[you tell me beneath your breath]
hands in your pockets & looking away
as if there are diamonds in your eyes

november two thousand nineteen
