poetry by j matthew waters

Afraid to die

Afraid to die not afraid
which is it man
please make up your mind

But isn’t that the way it goes
everything is temporary
making decisions & then
reversing them
perhaps by way of public opinion
or simply because you don’t
know how to think for yourself

I used to think everyone
was afraid to die
but yes how naive & foolish
that now seems
having come to witness
the rebirth of man & woman alike

march two thousand twenty-one
