poetry by j matthew waters


in the backyard
all secure by a privacy fence
two boys continue their work
on new and improved old ideas

they’ve done the math
and they’ve completed
the construction
all that’s left is to send
that damn rocket
out into outer space

striking a light
they set the fuse to burn
running away at full speed
their future blazing overhead

march two thousand nineteen
