poetry by j matthew waters

collage interpretation


they’ve been in isolation
going on three years now
making money by assembling
kaleidoscopes
at the kitchen table

the youngest is getting smarter
day by day
and the cat has become
like a carrier pigeon
taking out the trash
and bringing back news from
the outside

it’s a kind of reality
the world is getting used to
clouds transmitting signals
via air or radio or millimeter waves
occasionally changing up the frequencies
giving life to handmade
kaleidoscopes
secretly being launched into
outer space





january two thousand twenty-two
