poetry by j matthew waters

the jump start


the creation story
rewriting itself
every morning
you open your eyes

I remember
she once told me
‘I’m not myself’
leading me to believe
she was finally starting
to understand

I’m not about to
dissect every single
week by week interval
but I am prepared
to trace back & slice out
a piece of time
the one that says yes
this is where it started
