poetry by j matthew waters

castles made of sand

wake up wake up
the moon she is arising

grab your ugly sweater
the one that amuses me in my dreams
and meet me at the shoreline

stuff your pockets with little candies
leftovers from late october
we’ll pick and choose as we please

lockstep in bare feet
we walk silently hand in hand
counting castles along the way

kiss me kiss me
for I fear I may be awakening

december two thousand nineteen
