poetry by j matthew waters

waiting for the bell to ring

to be more abstract
a jonathon cut into six parts
shared by four people
sitting ‘round a table for three

conversations often lead
to detours & dead ends
how the one never listens
all others simply rambling

it always get late too early
in this part of town
floating higher than ten stories
thank you hash under glass

the count is unanimous
pheasant for the last supper
a wish & likely a reality
pears ripening in wicker basket

november two thousand twenty-one
