poetry by j matthew waters

earthbound and elemental

she keeps old zippo
and stick matches
stashed inside denim pockets
just in case something
ever needs starting

innocent dragons
breathe in knowledge
exhaling old world ideas
to winded children
dying for fresh air

oceans rock and roil
worshipped by clouds
parading as aliens
showering the coast

deep within the soil
life awakens
stirred by foot driven shovels
uncovering rock
never before seen

january two thousand fourteen
