poetry by j matthew waters

search party

mad scientists experiment with crash test beauties
self-driving cars fueled by all-powerful sunshine
speeding down mojave superhighway

once promising starlets now victims of trial and error
first degree texts erased by corrosive sand
blown away by bulging moon and desert winds

friends and relatives and drones search earth and sky
all signs of life and death seemingly nonexistent
as if nothing ever really happens here

april two thousand eighteen

  1. The first sentence of the first and second stanzas are my favorites.
