poetry by j matthew waters

bittersweet


addicted to the unknown
& because we don’t know any better
we shame ourselves
by exposing our bodies & souls
up & down the avenue

on the shoreline
we casually collect seashells
& look at ourselves in the mirror
unlocking the mysteries
to the goddess of love

by eventide we turn away
throwing away the unconquerable
but keeping what matters most
the off-white angel wings
& footprints in the sand





march two thousand twenty-two

  1. No more risk-taking. No more addicted to the unknown. Safe, predictable, sensible is my current dynamic. Problem is though, I’m finding it hard to craft this bubble.
