poetry by j matthew waters

time keeps on slipping (or fly like an eagle)


weekend planner says it’s time to
unplug and slip into a future
where part of the solution
comes from those with all the money

in a world full of greed
when does it stop spinning
so we can take stock
at least of for a moment
of what we got

as far as poverty and housing
and footwear is concerned
steve miller once proclaimed in song
there’s a solution
but that was over forty years ago
and though it keeps playing on air
nobody’s been exactly listening





may two thousand nineteen
