poetry by j matthew waters

dear diary

or whatever it is you are calling
yourself these days
I’m beginning to believe
you’re stepping into a brand
new world
slightly the same
but maybe edgier [or tamer]
just can’t quite
put a finger on it

I recall you asking me
if a cat has nine lives
how many more shouldn’t we

it’s all about the math
you went on to explain
and me vividly remembering
writing it all down

march two thousand twenty-one
