poetry by j matthew waters

repainting the town

we’re going to paint the town
it’s only a matter of deciding
which color

and therein lies the dilemma

while red is the obvious choice
it’s become socially unacceptable

along those lines you may as well
eliminate yellow or any shade
of black & white

politics aside I find myself redefining
the painter’s palette
offering the world brand new colors
but asking you (& only you)
which one we’ll be going with
