poetry by j matthew waters

mutiny


I’m lost again
in a sea of assumptions
afloat on a timeless journey
neither tired nor alert
but perfectly at ease

oh my captain
long abandoned ship
surrendering in theory
in a bloodless coup
now subject to discovery

amid so many
I’ve never felt so lonely
going about my daily routine
in quiet contemplation
in search of land or my lord





may two thousand nineteen
