poetry by j matthew waters

the big chase

there are too many questions and not
enough answers
but one day that will all change

you cannot determine your final demise
and it would be foolish to try
it might be best not to think about the chicken
or egg while crossing any particular
milestone or county line

maybe money makes it all better
but then again probably not
may in fact ultimately complicate things
blind innocence enticed by quiet greed

there is this great chase as big or bigger
than anything revolving in the universe
and there you are
in the thick of things
finally getting answers

may two thousand seventeen

    Out of all that could grab me, it’s the phrase “quiet greed” … which I’m actually reading as a greed for quiet.

    let’s hope the answers are all that we hope them to be.
