poetry by j matthew waters

brokering the next deal

I was wondering about those
fabergé eggs & whatever
it would take to get my hands on some

I’ve pretended to live a life
I don’t lead
for as long as I can remember
the yachts & the jewels & the artwork
& whatever else is registered in my name
all is true as true can be

money in the bank
money on main street
money on wall street & foreign exchanges
properties on shorelines & mountaintops
or deep inside redwood forests

ambition oh yes
there is plenty of ambition
getting down to the bottom of beautiful things
especially when taking into account
the last of the eggs

november two thousand twenty-two
