poetry by j matthew waters

the butterfly effect

some places are easier to revisit than others
especially difficult are those borderline vagaries
not easily accessible from your memory bank

I’ve been told don’t overspend on a time machine
especially when the one you already possess
is perfectly capable of reaching a higher level

not everyone is interested in propelling forward
or tumbling centuries backwards
slightly redoing this or tinkering with that
gradually stitching your wings until repaired
certain to change the course of history

  1. I’ve always been interested in the butterfly effect. Gradually stitching one’s wings to change the future is so creatively said. Change one little thing and everything else changes. That is a powerful thought. 🙂
