poetry by j matthew waters


cutting through the noise
we’re going to need more knives
or sharpen the ones having grown
quiet all these years

here can you help me
I’ve more than one honing steel
we can spend the day
talking about the weather
while whetting away

once we’re done
we’ll change into our ninja armor
living by dancing again
wielding our resurrected blades
into the suffocating air

september two thousand twenty
