poetry by j matthew waters

the man in black

at the trading post
I was told I could get
anything I wanted
but what I wanted
was already taken
by the white man

I was a little man
way back then
maybe so to this day
but I’ll never forget
that man who never
kept his eyes off me

december two thousand twenty
