poetry by j matthew waters

mirror for the sun

widening curves and picking up speed
mind free from yesterday’s rearview
reminds me of day trippin’ ditty
traveling purposely with favorite allies
bags packed but mindlessly left behind

we’ve not been down this road before
but how she sure looks oh so familiar
holding tight as we lean around the bend
keeping screams to ourselves before
letting loose down straight and narrow

fm radio streaming without static
cooler in back keeping coronas cold
we chase a sideways moon sinking into sea
determined to find the end of the road
and drive a stake into a brand new day

july two thousand eighteen
