poetry by j matthew waters

radio signal

hash brownies or under glass
one getting you focused
sooner than later

it was an unusual night
radio waves not quite
behaving like they should

an interstellar oddity
traveling nearly a lifetime
breaks through your exosphere

there it is there it is
you shout in excitement
handing over the telescope

outside it’s a beautiful dawn
hands upraised & open
welcoming the next chapter

january two thousand twenty-two
