poetry by j matthew waters

inside the apothecary shop


as history continues to repeat itself
I idly peruse the apothecary shop
filling my empty bread basket
casually
as if the atrocities of the latest century
can be replaced by non-
prescription drugs
newly arrived from omaha
or columbia or singapore
or maybe from the neighbor next door
the latter growing their own shrooms
& dabbling in synthetics
telling you how they’ve recently added
gambling to their repertoire





may two thousand twenty-two

  1. as if the atrocities of the latest century
    can be replaced by non-
    prescription drugs
    newly arrived from omaha…👌🏻 if only, right?!
