poetry by j matthew waters

Side by side

So it’s come to this
the will versus the way
your mind can’t possibly
though you’re dying to know

[it’s not difficult
harnessing a dragonfly
you merely need a reason
and the will]

Please be mindful
everything is repetitive
call it circles or cycles
the natural circumstance
of all ordinary things

But the flesh is not ordinary
and once removed
exposes the slightest of flaws
each turned back into the earth
alongside the easter lilies

november two thousand twenty
