poetry by j matthew waters

turn by turn navigation

let us reexamine where we’ve gone
thus far relatively speaking

there seems to be some question
regarding our general direction

one step forward and two steps back
why is it we keep stepping on cracks

though indifferent toward religion
saying prayers is still an option

I thought we had come here for good
but since learned we’re only visiting

though preparations must be made
we find ourselves living for the day

and those promises made long ago
will outlast any ancient road

august two thousand nineteen
