poetry by j matthew waters

lady in red

the stage is set
all the players in place
the guns go off
off they go running
right out of the gate

the powers above
picking & choosing
the ones who live
all the others dead
or downright dying

destroyed this time
by hyper-dynamite
the stage is reset
players back in place
dress in red

april two thousand twenty-three
