poetry by j matthew waters

hitching a ride through the universe

we came together out of nowhere
like a song that writes itself
we are on the outside looking in
but certainly not for the last time

separation comes too easy
the desire to go it alone
allowing the dice or cards
or madame bovary herself
to present an alternative path

but like anything else
we always return
back to the beginning
sometimes recognizing past lives
but rarely familiar faces

such vague passings may leave
you wondering
if we’ve become nothing
but the tail end of a comet

june two thousand twenty-two
