poetry by j matthew waters

succession planning

forget not
the southern gale
bringing back hope
from an otherwise
weary planet

how long it’s been
since the sun
shone on the surface
your thoughts
having grown dark
in recent years

artificial illuminations
light up the night sky
and for a moment
you wonder
how much longer
you plan to stay

january two thousand twenty-two
