poetry by j matthew waters


there I was in this movie
adapted from a novel
written in the previous century
having been lost in the city
along with a thousand other souls
marching away from the tourist district
and into a new kind of reality

of course I had no name
was not even a minor character
and received no credit
but there I was lost in the pages
from a lifetime ago
only to be projected onto the screen
for all the world to see

august two thousand twenty-one
