poetry by j matthew waters

jealousy


I wasn’t about to give in
so I settled into letter writing
seven of them in seven days
eleven pages in all

never intended
for the daily mail
I read them one at a time
weeks having passed by
before committed to memory

having not the heart
to destroy them
I secured them in a lock box
in the post office

from there I would renew
my passport & never return again
