poetry by j matthew waters

the next one hundred years

I’ve been trying to bring everything
into focus
been thinking of placing a phone
call or two
ended up consulting with myself
but those talks
pretty much stalled prematurely

I’m thinking it may be high time
for plan B
dial me up some dead
and try to get to the bottom of things
start having
one on one interviews with
Mama and Greg and Sister Maria

I know it’ll cost me emotionally
and financially
but I’m willing to sacrificing anything
to gain some insight
into what might happen tomorrow
or better yet
the next one hundred years

march two thousand twenty
