poetry by j matthew waters

when least expected

from out of nowhere you arrive
unannounced and animated
knocking down doors and
taking names
as if it’s the first time
you’ve ever been here

we ask for your credentials
but all you do is laugh
flipping through
your little black book
sharpening your pencil
with the tip of your tongue

november two thousand nineteen
