poetry by j matthew waters

missing in action

there’s nothing to see here
everybody move along

when authority figures
tell people to move along
chances are
there is plenty to see

the shooting took place
and by lunch time
two dwellings & three
vehicles were taped off

there was plenty of talk
but not much action
& those with pics or vids
on their person
most likely kept them
close to the vest

september two thousand twenty-two
