poetry by j matthew waters

Jacob’s Ladder

The sky was deep purple
making it very easy
to see the white kite with
its white tail
darting like a sailboat
on the high seas

Purple turned to violet
turned to lavender
quelling the violence
having bubbled
on the surface
easing toward the firmament

A million angels
parachuted from the sky
a rescue mission
for all the ages
notably all the children
grasping the taut string

may two thousand twenty-one
