poetry by j matthew waters

scrolling thru negatives

the proverbial power nap
do I awaken from death
yet again
or will this be
the last encore
I’ll ever perform

when I fell off the stage
they attempted
to resuscitate me
but it was too little too late
my vital signs
into a black hole

& amateurs alike
review their camera rolls
from various angles
saying my god
he stood right before me
& now like the wind
suddenly nondescript

may two thousand twenty-three
