poetry by j matthew waters

get away

I know Tracy has access to a fast car
but that’s not gonna make it for me
I’m thinking there must be a better way

nonetheless she’s in the background
singing the same song in a different key
comforting me when I need it most
reminding me there’s always another way

yeah I’ve got a job that pays all the bills
but I’m thinking working for a living
can get you only so far
that driving a fast car is fun for awhile
unless of course you can make it fly

august two thousand twenty
