poetry by j matthew waters

hitching a slow ride back to reality


where are you going and how deep
have you delved into this world within a world

it’s like discovering a brand new planet
and the race to get there is extreme
actor after actor catching the next wave

your eyes are not your own but then again
what you see is superficial
appearing courtesy of part fact and part fiction

I keep asking you what is the rush
but you’re unable to hear mere mortal words
faint voices sounding vaguely familiar



may two thousand seventeen

  1. Is that your eyes are not your own or owned??? I like the poem by the way, just feel you’ve left something out.
