poetry by j matthew waters

changing stations

there’s a monster
feeding on the airwaves
sublimely consuming reflections
lazily drifting its way

they keep saying
don’t go there
keep your thoughts to yourself
or the monster will consume them
& pull you further in

in the airwaves there are roses
of every living colour
tempting you with their temporary beauty
while the monster
panting like a panther
pounces on your every lost thought

may two thousand twenty-one
