poetry by j matthew waters

lying for no good reason

the sun stayed behind
the clouds all day long
but the heat
the heat man
it seems that is all they
wanted to talk about

don’t go out
don’t go out they would say
there’s nothing out there for
anyone anymore
but the fact of the matter remains
they’re all lying
using every single reason
there is in the book

yeah times are changing
but they always do
this much we know
yeah times are changing
and so are you
sometimes one step
& sometimes
ten thousand steps at a time

august two thousand twenty
