poetry by j matthew waters

on the high seas

forgive my apathy
I’m long adrift in no man’s land
examining all life around me
as if for the last time

offbeat winds blowing
in contradictory directions
stars steering me at night
offering empathy

this invisible me
like a thimble in the raging sea
believably staying afloat
white flag waving high

october two thousand twenty
