poetry by j matthew waters

my active imagination

the telephone doesn’t ring anymore
long ago replaced by something
that just vibrates
the caller’s identification appearing
out of thin air
usually unrecognizable
like an alien’s face on a milk carton

I’ve been drifting of late
disconnected by way of apathy
neglecting anything needing charging
in order to survive
resurrecting once abandoned vices
that may or may not
jump-start my active imagination
