poetry by j matthew waters

while listening to suffragette city

we’re not talking anymore
but that’s okay
something about what she said
and what he didn’t

there was nothing in the mail today
and naturally I took that as
some kind of sign

as the day wore on I kept thinking
about what happened and what didn’t

later on I was in the kitchen
dicing celery & onion & green pepper
[bowie singing through the airwaves]
my mind wandering
repeating under my breath
I should know better

march two thousand twenty-one
