poetry by j matthew waters

tendencies & interpretations

I’ve been smoking weed again
for reasons I can’t explain
whether sitting in a folding chair
or spread out
on the davenport of despair

yes I say to anyone
who bothers to ask me
I’ve been shaving my legs again
dreaming of being back in Athens
in the year two thousand

mornings are dark again & suicidal
tendencies have returned
to my stream of consciousness
right along with hot chocolate
& knee-high leather boots

images trigger recollections
subject to interpretation
reminding how I used to call you
anytime twenty-four seven
but as of late your number
remains disconnected

october two thousand twenty-one
