poetry by j matthew waters

the rookie

it’s a complicated thing
trying to live in the past
whether it be via memories
or physical reality itself

the theory of experience
is like a bulletproof vest
hanging on the door hook

next time you’ll probably
take it with you

if there is a next time

march two thousand twenty-two
