poetry by j matthew waters

a collage of sorts

working on a collage of sorts
I find myself in a world other than my own
latest abridged editions of dictionary & thesaurus
nearly within an arm’s length
occasionally referring to them with eyes wide shut

by the time you walk in
I’ve managed to rearrange every single word
beyond the point of recognition
string becoming rope becoming knot
mathematically twisted by persistent trial & error

september two thousand twenty
