poetry by j matthew waters

a day in the life

piece of shit chevy
idling choppily blocks away
lone lunatic in driver’s seat
under the influence of the almighty
setting his sights on suicidal destruction
certain to be caught on film
and reconstructed on the nightly news

november two thousand fifteen

Author’s Note: The accompanying instrumental was performed by Jeff Beck from ‘In My Life,’ an album compiled and produced by Sir George Martin in 1988.
