poetry by j matthew waters

until it was too late

I’m at your mercy
it’s always been this way
ever since my very first breath

who you may be
is constantly changing
adding to my ongoing confusion

your whereabouts
are never exactly known
coming & going at your leisure

at times undetectable
once for so many years on end
I came to believe you were nothing
until it was too late

december two thousand twenty
