poetry by j matthew waters

working on a thing

I’ve got a couple of eggs
but no bread
I’m pretty sure
there’s much that can be done

there’s mustard & mayo
and pickle relish in the door
the cat meows as it closes
sauntering out of sight

looking outside
there is more to consider
lettuce & cabbage in the garden
a few critters conspiring

push comes to shove
everything gets scrambled
a motion picture photographed
inside the kitchen

february two thousand twenty-one
