poetry by j matthew waters


I’m all alone in my room
listening to toxicity
unfamiliar lyrics
forming & shaping
my current state of mind
drinking casually
drawing smoke to my lungs
needle & spoon
within arm’s reach

I sing along whenever I can
guessing what words
may come next
as if learning a new language
the recording progresses
banging my head
against an imaginary wall
thrashing my head
into the electrified air

august two thousand twenty
