poetry by j matthew waters

mental illness is not a recent phenomenon

he sits and/or stands
in his underground laboratory
some days dressed in black
other days white
[but never gray]
multi-tasking like only
a well-focused madman can do

according to fact checkers
he had three internet connections
and two 3D printers
one making weapons of mass
the other spitting out instructions
on how to make friends

may two thousand twenty-two
