I relate to J Matthew Waters’ poetry more often than not. And here’s a perfect example.


you’re a producer
an individual & an artist
an entrepreneur cut from the
same cloth as a perfectionist
redoing & undoing & redoing
for goodness’ sake

you live your own life
believing it’s furthest from a lie
for no good reason
meticulously cutting & pasting
repeatedly undoing & redoing
until you make it right

lay down a few choice ideas
like lavender or violet or purple
oh why not all three
undo redo undo redo
or better yet brush them all together
& let the curtain rise
