poetry by j matthew waters

how far are the stars

give me a burst of energy
so I may repair your smile

I will unroll the red carpet
and hold out my hand

taking your photograph
as you approach

one step at a time
neither quickly nor slowly

how it seems the whole world
is watching & wondering

imprecisely how far
are the stars from here

may two thousand twenty-one
