poetry by j matthew waters

trials and errors and tribulations

piece by piece I make myself
starting and stopping
and starting all over again
thinking one of these times
I will get it right

I see myself as a minor god
practicing mad science
relentlessly experimenting
creating new worlds out of thin air
and extinguishing them
for no good reason

one day I will give it all up
in exchange for something
I know nothing about
until then it’s back to business
that is remaking myself
