poetry by j matthew waters

not laboring over the stove

self medicating may be the answer
adding honey & cayenne pepper
into a pot of simmering simplicity

starting with an exotic bone broth
add in a couple metamorphic rocks
and walk away for a day or two

while you’re away the remaining
ingredients will add themselves
like missionaries jumping into the fray

august two thousand twenty-one
