poetry by j matthew waters

harnessing the wind

rent is three weeks overdue but that’s cool
according to the new rules

then there’s three of us or perhaps four
hanging out in the third floor dormer
glass writing desk facing the octagonal sky

time travel seems easy of late
caught between reality & endless grace days
transgressing past the same old lines

here we go again overlooking the mississippi
up a little higher than prospect park
smoking salems and reloading the toker ii

we take turns passing the binoculars
bringing into focus various white triangles
racing faster than the wind

may two thousand twenty
