poetry by j matthew waters

on the streets of san francisco


I’ve been listening to the revolution
evolving on the radio
emergency broadcast system
reporting prisoners on the loose
and exotic birds taking flight

meanwhile tiny soldiers steal
from local food banks
exchanging day-old bread
for water and ammunition
on the corner of oak and divisadero




july two thousand nineteen
