poetry by j matthew waters

following the scent

there is shelter down
the road
or so we heard

by way of mouth

forget wifi or satellite
they’re of no use here
and haven’t been
for what seems

like centuries

we’ve been sleeping
by day
and hoofing it
by night
all the while chronicaling
our journey
just in case

we don’t make it out alive

we lost our means
of transport
nearly a fortnight
by now must surely
be catapulting

toward the stars

we keep telling ourselves
if anyone wonders
we don’t know anything
about our designated
driver’s whereabouts

but we still believe she’s the key

to getting us the hell
out of here

november two thousand eighteen
