poetry by j matthew waters

Who have you been reading lately

A trick question if I ever heard one
& I quickly respond with something like
sometimes it’s not who but what

[I happily elaborate]
offering WaPo as an example
who magnanimously gives me
three free articles per month

So what then
what else have you been reading lately
or may I venture a guess or three
is it MSN dot com
or Craigslist
or volumes & volumes of obscure entries

Yes oh yes
indeed and all of the above
expanding my mind a few terabytes at a time
believing whatever I consume
I’ll be able to take with me

Such as the New York School of Poets
