New Poetry by Matthew Davies


If your tongue would wobble a bit more,
you’ll have more history
to be silent over.

- Matthew Davies 2012


He changed the dirty sheets
To change his dirty mind

He emptied the ashtray
To quit smoking

He scrubbed away the nicotine stain
To recreate his youth

He did the dishes
To force discipline

He blew his brains out
To find a heaven

- Matthew Davies 2012
