poetry by j matthew waters

her dark secret

stay away from him
is all they said
as if to say he is
not well

a vague warning
from a small town
without a purpose
other than to cast
where there are none

she came from the city
and found him
awkward & intriguing
though at times behind
the boathouse
never felt more alive

there are no
chronological orders
to follow in this
sordid affair
her presence somehow
disturbing time
their disappearance
to this day

april two thousand twenty-two
