poetry by j matthew waters

undoing the end of time

I imagine as the years pass
change appears to quicken its pace
when in fact all along it’s been this way
from the very start

people are passionate by nature
though by many varying degrees
hiders & seekers alike
attempting to vainly save themselves
or selflessly saving others

we can stampede much faster
than one or twenty horses
kicking up dirt & turning the landscape
into a horizontal blur
or methodically slow things down
to a virtual crawl
wiping clear the skies & undoing
the end of time
