poetry by j matthew waters

alive like a stone

what’re you gonna do
with that stone
in the palm of your hand
the one about the size
of a partridge egg

it seems to change
colors for no
apparent reason
a dead giveaway
it’s likely not
from around here

it’s a world unto itself
is how you put it
going on to say you’re
attempting to mimic
its radio frequencies
resting & pulsating
in the palm of your hand
