poetry by j matthew waters

idling at the crossroad

perhaps earth herself was responsible
for killing off the dinosaurs
and nothing else
having become disgruntled with the way
they pillaged the land
a select few destroying the lives
of so many others

they shall be reduced to birds of flight
and various reptilian creatures
who will later be named by humans
but only after the latter
would have reached a certain degree
of intelligence

the rest of the story stands before you
idling at the crossroad
the beauty of her diversity at odds
with the human byproduct

   the contributions of the artists
   the pollution of the cities
   capitalism & socialism & pseudo philanthropy
   geometry & astrology & poetry
   mass murder & social injustice
   merry christmas & april fool’s day

december two thousand twenty-one
