poetry by j matthew waters

making our way to new york city

so here we go again
chasing tornados across the country
just when we thought the worst
of the season had ended

what we’re finding is nothing
ever ends but simply
segues into a new strain
jumping from seattle to dallas
bouncing up north to chicago
then quickly diving back down
all the way to new orleans

we never tire traveling county to county
pursuing storms and trying
to stay ahead of the curve
doing what we can to save lives
whether it’s an entire small town
directly in the path of the beast
or that proverbial cat stuck in a tree

april two thousand twenty
