poetry by j matthew waters


I could have sworn
that I’d already started
germinating ideas
[as if I was
three years old again]
that my decrees
made perfect sense
especially the dancing parts

It’s true you left me
to my own devices
but I worked them magically
bringing back poetry
I’d written in a prior life
pleading for you to listen
to make an appearance
either in body
or in spirit

may two thousand twenty-two
