poetry by j matthew waters

buckle up and best of luck

look out for those high tension cables
chevy pickup truck
you cannot leap like the deer

white lines on frozen concrete
come and go like the wind
exposing black ice and bruised souls

appear out of nowhere
adorned with garlands and playthings

digital readerboards overhead
count the number of dead
recently reset on january first

march two thousand seventeen
