poetry by j matthew waters

working on a mystery

playing with house money
we experiment with more odds
mixing wisdom with youthfulness
courtesy of an unknown god

you scratch your proverbial head
asking which way next
pretending to comprehend
how the road only goes ahead

you’re in the passenger seat
someone else behind the wheel
no longer working on a mystery
mere mortals merely dreaming

august two thousand twenty-two
