poetry by j matthew waters

missing the ocean & the moon

out of nowhere a cat cries
and a squall comes to light
sudden hail & rainfall
winds sweeping away
the sweet sunshine

the whole town
drowned in alcohol
the news reporters unable
to get the story right
the underlying premise
how the good graces would
have them flower again

april two thousand twenty-two
