behind the alibi
alone I wander the sea
just me and my alibi
and yellow submarine
beneath the depths of
shooting stars sail on
outside the alibi
old borders collapse
new realities emerge
and living a new lie

You can always count on J. Matthew Waters for entertaining poetry!
Hello D.J. and thanks so much for reblog and comments – I’m very much appreciative of your support.
I enjoyed this poem. I really like how you have an audio version of your poems at the end of each posts.
Thanks so much for visiting and commenting on this piece, Kirsten. I’ve always been a fan of the spoken word and believe poetry is better when read out loud. 😀
I’ve done a couple of spoken word posts on my blog. I hope to do more once NaPoWriMo is over. Although, I’m not very good at reading my poetry out loud. 🙂
“and living a new lie” and so it goes…
hopefully not forever….
