poetry by j matthew waters

the crucifixion

it’s electrical
the way the whole world lights up
that is until it does not

protestors with signs
walk the streets at night
chanting the world is ending
chanting the end is near

some of them feel cheated
others vindicated
a small minority honored
to be included in the end times
some of them wondering
if it will be like the snap of a finger
or a slow & painful death

march two thousand twenty-one
