poetry by j matthew waters

river crossing

highways & county roads & small towns
crisscrossing the landscape
no maps necessary
push in the clutch & shift into fifth
release & press the petal to the floor

interstate travel provides just rewards
whether legal or otherwise
one particular dispensary
open seven days a week
on the illinois side of the mississippi

april two thousand twenty-one
