poetry by j matthew waters

the rise of the wildflowers

what else is there to do than question
the degree of violence in society today

maybe we shouldn’t flatter ourselves
until we actually let loose the nukes

talk about depopulating the world
an ambitious goal somehow achieved

much sooner than previously imagined
at a cost much lower due to stagflation

and as economists rethink their stances
victorious warlords take on more land

july two thousand twenty-two
