poetry by j matthew waters

we are exiles

how proud the sun must be
giving life incredulity
inside her own little galaxy

as a member of her third family
she gave me life & took it away

to the point where I was
unmistakably incapable of
learning from past transgressions

and so without fanfare
she banished me from her realm
sent me sailing into interstellar space
hopeful one day another star
would pull me in

september two thousand twenty-two
