poetry by j matthew waters


I am outside of my body again
taking a test flight & practicing diving
like a gannet in the bay of biscay

come winter the wicked storms
will be the fiercest in recent memory
forcing my eventual return

living below the surface
I manage to experience flashbacks
of a life high above the sea

november two thousand twenty-one
