poetry by j matthew waters

turn by turn navigation

how can it be that you’re with me
every step of the way
even though you’re nowhere
near the vicinity

the roadmap in my pocket
changes constantly
and though I’ve been tempted
on multiple occasions
to pitch it out the window
I continue to spread it out
finding new ways
to reach same old places

[the best roadmap is one
that can be folded
many different ways]

soon spring will become summer
and the summer sun
will recharge my batteries
getting me back on the
road to recovery
your spirited old self
back in the proverbial saddle
guiding me turn by turn

april two thousand nineteen
