poetry by j matthew waters


I have morphed
into something new
effectively ending
my identity crisis

what prayer
will you say for me
—what item of mine
will remain
in your pocket

I have lasted longer
than you could
have imagined
and now that I am
somebody new
will you notice
[as I walk on by]
all the nuances
bestowed upon me

november two thousand twenty-two
