poetry by j matthew waters

doctors without sound barriers


this place is broken
tragically in disrepair
like a neglected heart with
various hairline fractures

it’s easy to smile
if only superficially
telling yourself and others
the sickness will somehow end

local physicians
become increasingly absent
sent off on unknown spacecraft
resurrecting those dying



may two thousand seventeen
