poetry by j matthew waters


Slow things down my friend
before you burn out before
the morning light

Experiments are taking place
in the least expected places
kitchens & garages & wineries
roadside parks & inground pools

Secret recipes pass
by way of blood or bribery
the open market buying & selling
the sweeter the better

Burning the midnight oil
most often backfires
but when it doesn’t
oh but when it doesn’t

september two thousand twenty-one
