poetry by j matthew waters

afternoon road trip for two

I’ve not been down this road
in decades
pushing foot on clutch
and shifting gears
reliving a life that has no end
trees weeping around the bend

eyes crystal clear and protected
by bill of cap
sun baking asphalt
and tires gripping
speeding forward toward the light
resting stop nowhere in sight

soul-searching takes a back seat
on saturdays
traversing new paths
and fantasizing
top down and silk scarf ablaze
sunglasses concealing your gaze

november two thousand eighteen
