poetry by j matthew waters

the rise of the monarch butterfly

far from the embattled cities
beyond the waves of love and fury
milkweed grows wild along
county roads and graveled byways
(introducing rows of half-grown corn)
bending with the wind
and corrected occasionally
by a fleeting motorist

july two thousand sixteen
