poetry by j matthew waters

changing of the guard

it takes energy
to sustain energy
to create & recreate

the mirror understands
goes back in time
your neck at an angle
trying to decipher if what
you saw is what you recall

they’re making money
out of thin air
tens of thousands of machines
mining like virtual maniacs
their controllers hoping to
strike gold again
secluded in the sierra foothills

it’s understood some cities
are being flattened
old bosses with their old technologies
laying to waste their arsenals
out of sheer boredom

march two thousand twenty-two
