poetry by j matthew waters

the next conspiracy theory

so much for the twenty-first century
already dead & gone in so
many amazing minds

what at first promised
wine & roses & endless opportunity
quickly spiraled
in slow motion fashion like an
unmanned tunnel boring machine

some fools are following right along
believing their journey
to the center of the earth
will magically alter the course
of human events

august two thousand twenty-one
