poetry by j matthew waters

from this world to the next

I witnessed you entering this world
I myself on my way out the door
undone by assassinations
and conspiracy theories
stories wound tight only to
unravel like some flawed mystery

there is no relation between
you and me or your unwed mother
I just happened to be at the
right place at the right time
having recently discovered my soul
roaming from room to room

july two thousand eighteen
