poetry by j matthew waters

no one sings like you anymore

how many songs will carry me
how many verses and choruses
how many lyrics memorized
oh it’s an impossible count

like the flute to the cobra
or feline to violin
musical relationships exist
in a strictly personal sense

beyond the mystic
already lighter than a feather
basking in a surreal sun
finally oh finally I find your voice
