poetry by j matthew waters

mobilizing the masses

we’ve been fooled again
or so it seems
by so-called friends coming and going
with redundant regularity
unnecessarily undermining altruistic ideas
such as a world truly free of
world war weaponry

though the artist may be crippled
she will remain relevant
pushing out new work in
unconventional ways

to imagine the mountain
outside my window
one day long ago was never there
and one day far in the future
will have simply disappeared

man-made destructive forces
once intruding upon our lives
(like those so-called friends)
will one day turn against themselves
never to exist again

march two thousand eighteen
