poetry by j matthew waters


the end is near

explosions are only the beginning

the people ran from the enemy within
emptying ten story buildings in a matter

of mere minutes

I swear you were born yesterday
and now you are dying like the rest of us
at some point there is no looking back
there is only the explosions

the earth has died many times before
only to come back more beautiful than ever

like the calm before the storm

november two thousand twenty-one
