poetry by j matthew waters

champagne jam

all this noise and sometimes
you can’t strip it away
it just keeps coming back
like yellow jackets
hijacking the queen’s cargo

paranoid herod orders
assassinations on prophets and
airstrikes on newborns
his teflon crown deflecting
insults from church and state

men of steel fly sky high
and dig deep into the ground
executing commands from
man on high
tasting new jams and
sipping champagne

august two thousand sixteen
