poetry by j matthew waters

Come Easter Morning

First the stock market crashed
that emotionally intelligent bitch
always overreacting but always spot on
on her general assessment of things

Second the walls starting crumbling down
but unlike in the fall of eighty-nine when the
destruction ushered in a new era
this time fortified walls were swallowed
whole by the earth herself
further separating millions more

Third but not least all places of worship
were boarded up or locked down
desecrated or burned to the ground
     and all the people of faith
no matter their object of devotion
believed it was only a matter of time
before theirs will be raised again

april two thousand twenty
