poetry by j matthew waters

as palatable as sadness circulating in the air


there is sadness in the air
but in order to hear it you have to
shut everything down

whether it’s inside or out
of the body [or the house]
depends upon the strength of the sun
or the brilliance of the moon

follow me or lead the way
into the orchard
where seeds are plentiful
and temptations are as palatable
as sadness circulating in the air
