poetry by j matthew waters

hollywood vampires

I get into work early
it’s still dark
once the heater
has finally warmed
my still sleepy bones
I get out of the car

I get out and lock the car
using just my mind
proceed to walk away
as if I was never there
in the first place

there are few of us left
showing ourselves
just before daybreak
coasting this way and that
be it hand in hand
or heart to heart
no longer worried about
stranger things

january two thousand twenty
