poetry by j matthew waters

sounds of the earth & of the wind

the lightning abandoned the night
giving way to ashes falling like snow
white covering a fading darkness
like a shadow losing its life

there is no memory of yesterday
only the clarity of today
of tomato bisque & baked cod
served in the center free of charge

lines kept getting longer
in this ever complicated nation
interconnected with the underground
& all things afloat or suspended

lifted from grief & whisked away
consciousness evolved
into a perennial sunflower
its seeds grounded in the multiverse

may two thousand twenty-one
