poetry by j matthew waters

penny for your deepest thoughts

I count the repetitions inside my head
but along the way I always lose track
and I’m forced to start all over again

how these malicious ideas get started
is more or less confounding
but somehow they reach the masses
based on misinformation supplied by
bad actors in faraway places

sometimes I wonder what’s inside
this manipulated head of mine
whether or not it patently belongs to me
or is simply home to countless stars
eternally churning dark matter into light

may two thousand seventeen
