poetry by j matthew waters

Working on a new reality

A mirror’s a dangerous thing
reflecting what you think
you want to see

Step back my love
and I’ll tell you what I see
it’ll be totally different
from your present reality

Do you remember
when I told you how the vampires
in Petty’s song moved west
on Ventura Boulevard

Well that was a different
kind of reality as well
I whispered into your ear
as we slow dance
down in Baton Rouge

february two thousand twenty-two
