poetry by j matthew waters

staring down the sun

sometimes you just have to get
up and move
far away from where you once were
destination undefined
no purpose necessary

dress well and be on your way
it’s a lonely world out there
and you’ll fit in just fine
(just like you always have)
emptying your mind in the brisk air
your footfalls like a timepiece
you once wore on your wrist

what goes through your mind
is of no consequence
what matters now
is how you’ll find your way
from point A to point B
either by way of memory
or the angle of the sun

december two thousand nineteen
