poetry by j matthew waters

if only for the last time

a new may day straight ahead
one like none other
if and when we actually get there

I made a promise I would change
but that was long ago
& now I can’t recall into what

tonight we watch the sun turn blue
swallowing the night
making all the rivers rise higher

you’ve been here before
playing victim & demon & god
chasing the impossible moon
if only for the last time

april two thousand twenty
