poetry by j matthew waters

Archive for the tag “sunflower”

scooping dirt like clockwork

there are sunflower seeds
wrapped in paper towel inside
plastic sandwich bag
stowed away in kitchen drawer

above in cabinet canister of coffee
frequently removed from shelf
one or two scoops taken from within
right around sunrise
placed back nonchalantly

eventually container goes empty
the scoop left to its own devices
seeds still seemingly forgotten
dying to be found again

january two thousand eighteen
