poetry by j matthew waters

got a new drug

I used to sleep not much at all
for fear I’d never wake up

but as they say
times have changed
and now
I find myself devising ways
to manipulate various endings
of my new drug-induced dreams

mornings come
and mornings go
sometimes sun shining bright
others times not so much
but now
thanks to precision medicine
I’m able to stay near and dear to you
no matter what
