poetry by j matthew waters

The great resignation

Images replay in your mind
throughout a lifetime

Compared to photographs & recordings
or any other means
detailing what transpires here
only the memory keeps it true
to the original
whether in color or black & white
such unpredictable flashbacks
suddenly appear out of nowhere

Thinking back to a time
doesn’t always do itself justice
just as reaching deep inside
doesn’t always do the trick
oh no sometimes your memory
does on its own
what you can’t possibly control
especially when least expected
