poetry by j matthew waters

too good to be true

how many times have I said this
whether directly
or in so many words
sitting on the front porch swing
or lying back on the hood
of your ‘69 camaro
counting stars on a cloudless night

each time you tell me
you’ve no idea what’s in store
I reply with a silent nod and smile
imagining one day
the light will shine just right
and you’ll know
exactly how good it can be
