poetry by j matthew waters

for those in the know

I’m trying but I just don’t get it
how in the world am I expected
to get from point A to point B
when I’ve no idea where I am

I’m told to start from the beginning
which of course takes me back
to the bassinet
pretending to be sleeping
strangers occasionally checking in
to see if I’m still breathing

where I go from there
is anyone’s guess
except of course for those
in the know

august two thousand twenty-two
