poetry by j matthew waters

with a gun in her hand

besides the derringer
she owned three revolvers
and a winchester rifle
kept them stashed in the master bedroom
the former in the middle dresser drawer
the latter in the closet

for the afternoon outing she wore
an off-white summer dress
sporting a petite white purse with
the derringer inside
walking through a lonely park
with a married man
covertly arranged by an angry woman

august two thousand twenty-one
