poetry by j matthew waters


this life has been scripted
from the very start
not a fairy tale
not a love story
not a dress rehearsal
but rather written in the stars
evident & true to its word
for anyone to see

what happens afterwards
is scripted as well
awaiting your presence
like a child awaits her birthday
opening gift after gift
shredding the wrappings
exclaiming it’s exactly
what she had hoped for

february two thousand twenty-three
