poetry by j matthew waters

other than their own

complicating the situation
by pretending tomorrow doesn’t exist
that the eyes
when studied on a molecular level
reveals far more
than any absolute truth

at an early age
the children were taught
the fine art of voodoo doll making
experimenting with various
fabrics & stuffing & buttons
paying particular attention to the
details within the eye

there is possibility in effort
& craftsmanship in magic
a potent combination
reserved for those willing
to practice the art of sight
other than their own

may two thousand twenty-one
