poetry by j matthew waters

no static at all

in need of being alone
I took a different way home

kept pushing the button
changing the frequency
unable to get
comfortable with how I felt

I’m pretty sure Steely Dan
understands the art of FM
like nobody else in recent memory

in between the pauses
spirits build upon momentum
taking out towers
and taking over airwaves
offering sounds of second chances

april two thousand seventeen

  1. I love the first two lines.

    Steely Dan reminds me of a Sheryl Crow song I like. The Na-Na Song. Do you like her?
