poetry by j matthew waters

the shadow of the successor

fat chances
& second guesses
I’ll pass on placing any bets
[or judgments for that matter]
with such shitty odds

I’ve got no memory issues
—any regrets that may exist
are simply a thing of the past

as far as reconciling with the world
that was never in my hands

I’ve washed them clean
thanks to the goodness
of the almighty
also known as the heir apparent

september two thousand twenty-two
