poetry by j matthew waters

long after the crime

there’s much happening in the background
but it’s always been that way
this time though it’s closer to home
and with it comes a fear factor

the neighborhood’s not been the same
well before things were shut down
clamped down
locked down
new voices in a new language
broadcasting over the airwaves

it’s not difficult to learn something new
as long as there is proper motivation
like not wanting to die anytime soon

march two thousand twenty-one
