poetry by j matthew waters

working on an ending

it seems not like a good idea
to always start from the beginning
[just go and ask the gods]
seemingly the majority of cases
should be fine glossing over
their pre formative years

it’s easy to get ahead of ourselves
are you sure there’s nothing
else worth gleaning over
[not everything is sacred]
rewind & copy & fast forward & paste
static or dead air it matters not

here we are punching holes
pretending being someone else
[or somewhere else]
makes all the difference in the world
if not in the short term
than most definitely for a lifetime

april two thousand twenty
