poetry by j matthew waters

as you watch the world expand

do not fall for the trap that is time
for she has never been a foe
but more like a partner in crime

she has erased so many records
that have haunted you along the way
covering up your misdeeds
and replacing them with lies

it’s easy to stop remembering
but impossible to forget
how the morning air flowed effortlessly
as you surrender to a brand new day

there’s a cancer seductively resting
deep inside your entrails
biding its time but perfectly at ease

july two thousand eighteen
