poetry by j matthew waters

moving up through the ranks

wounded ant repairs himself
sends himself back into the fray
where he nary has time for loose chit-chat
nor counterproductive influences

there is no home sweet home
just a constant moving forward
last twenty-four hours exposing a dying light
in an ever-changing horizon

punching holes through earth
and wood often lead to nowhere
but when consumed by a billion megabytes
may uncover lasting paradise

december two thousand thirteen

  1. Great imagery, J!

    “Wounded ant repairs himself” is a wonderful line. Kind of what life’s all about.
