poetry by j matthew waters

ongoing clinical trials

it was thursday & we turned
everything off

outside the front door
I stood on the patio & breathed in
the fresh air

the grass & concrete
was slightly frosted over
the neighborhood street
quiet & mostly vacant
(somehow eerily queer)
like in a king story
or hitchcock movie

back in the kitchen
feel free to pick your poison
mimosa or bloody mary
or any kind of shot in the dark
whether from the liquor
or medicine cabinet

if for some reason
you feel the need to get away
please remember the little turkey
should be ready by two

november two thousand twenty
