poetry by j matthew waters

raincoats & umbrellas at dawn

they tell me I’ve been canceled
but all I can say is hey man
what else is new

I’ve been thinking about moving
so I bought a raincoat
& stood in the shower for an hour

[upon returning it the next day
I explained how I decided
to stay put]

now all I do is walk around
with my walking stick
(aka black umbrella)
daring anyone who looks like me
to a duel to the death

november two thousand twenty-one
