poetry by j matthew waters


you’ve been there
how many times now
countless times
starting way back when
when the birds
first learned to sing
and someone
invented lemonade

it seems we’re
just starting
to rework the garden
shredding the soil
and germinating
new seeds
the ones we found
in the far corner
at the market
price tag missing

it’s incredibly easy
to get lost
no matter
where you are
no matter
if you’re falling off
the edge of the earth
or spinning madly
inside a top
with endless energy

may two thousand twenty
