poetry by j matthew waters

artificial island

it is clear to me
the answers are embroiled
between the moon & ocean
impossible waves bearing witness
to what we believe to be true

how many notes
will you stuff inside bottles
castaways with nothing to lose
messages reworked as questions
a collection of uncontrolled vessels
of various size & composition

july two thousand twenty-two
