poetry by j matthew waters

Archive for the tag “african violet”

transplant song

cut up a sponge
and place in the bottom
of a pot
singing hong kong
taipei and beijing

throw in some rocks
and scoop in
garden soil
singing istanbul
allepo and baghdad

giving new lease
on life
to african violet
singing mogadishu
accra and nairobi

august two thousand nineteen
