poetry by j matthew waters

pausing to work on a different title

there are plenty of stories yet to tell
won’t you sit down & humor me
won’t you believe in yourself

the storm has come & gone
the rain gauge reset
there are words yet to be recorded
and gates to be repaired

but as you well know
those who rest too much die too soon
just as those speeding recklessly
encounter the same fate

when & where to call a timeout
that appears to be make a difference
for example like that instance
nobody cared for a whole year

august two thousand twenty-one
