poetry by j matthew waters

eighty feet & counting

it was a shock to the body
a rude awakening if you will
plunging headlong into the well
twisting & turning & falling fast

I swear I have been here before
breathing easily underwater
eyes wide open & seeing clearly
sixty seventy eighty feet & counting

there was no end in sight
which is exactly how it should be
buried treasures such as these
are not meant to be found easily

december two thousand twenty
