poetry by j matthew waters

song of the dead

the complete destruction
of the inner self
man-made annihilation of the
third kind
on the verge of reinvention
of inner thought
of stillness & water & ash
a private practice
a near death experience

may two thousand twenty-two

  1. I have so many interpretations of this poem, I just let my imagination run away with me. Many meanings, great write Mr. Matthews.
