poetry by j matthew waters

pardon me for my intermittent absences

excuse me but something
has taken over my life
call it a shadow I’ve never known
call it anything that you will
just understand what you see
can’t possibly be me

dreams are everything now
a new reality filled with pathways
carved through the pines
filtered light from the heavens
spotlighting all the souls
we’ve come to know

it’s as if I’m going in & out
of consciousness
smiling on the hour every hour
throwing boomerangs beyond
the tallest of trees
always zeroing back in on my flesh
each & every time

july two thousand twenty-two
