poetry by j matthew waters

sometime after sunset


as old stories unravel
new possibilities begin
artfully rewriting your own
character
right there in the streets
of portland oregon

some catch on early
seeing right through the fabric
of santa           & the great pumpkin
          of organized religion
or the deep state itself
     [while far too many others
fall for the latest mousetrap]

it stands to reason
one mistruth leads to another
          but at some point
all good things must come to end

imagine now
everything you ever imagined
never belonged to you
