poetry by j matthew waters

if we ever get out of here


wanting to go deep
past the beginning
the starting place
keeps changing

self-medicating
with various devices
unlikely approved
by the powers that be
haphazardly curing
that which ails me
one unforgivable sin
at a time

before the cock
crows (again)
I tell myself I’ve never
denied you
not in this life
nor the next





august two thousand twenty-two
