poetry by j matthew waters

following the cult of personality

it’s time to participate
or so it seems
time to make-believe
the world is but a movie
and we are called into action
by the masterful director

though only one in a million
every extra is crucial
every weapon drawn
both hands on the grip
the muzzle touching
the right earlobe

winner takes all
that’s all there is to know
and when the masterful director
shouts out ‘action’
we all come rushing in
ushering in a new beginning
