poetry by j matthew waters

ghosts trapped within

you can’t keep them in chains
but sometimes that’s exactly
how they feel
waltzing through fields
or transcending down a river
fed into a never-ending story

they see each other perfectly
having shed their imperfections
here and there
gathering among the gathered
accepting the incoming storm
as if they are trapped within

february two thousand twenty-two
