poetry by j matthew waters

the long goodbye


we are ingrained in repetition
long before we were born

before then we already knew
rivers run into the sea
& stars fall from the sky

you’ve learned by way of music
how riders of the storm
were born into this lonely house

and so you close your eyes
dancing in the center of
your own universe

one in which has no ending





march two thousand twenty-two
