poetry by j matthew waters

temporarily suspended

I bought one of those metal
tea kettles that whistle
mainly to study more closely
my own reaction to the
sound of pressure

I’ve been working on the
same New York Times
crossword puzzle
inking in one answer per day
these past fifty days

In less than a week I’d say
the picture should be complete
and then & only then
I’ll be more than ready
to get back in the game

october two thousand twenty
