poetry by j matthew waters

time will tell time and again

we’re not going to talk about the weather
or the first full day of autumn
now grab your jacket & get in the car
this time we’re going all the way to san jose

* * *

shifting sleep hours is but a trick of the brain
—much like the subtle change of
the angle of the sun

* * *

beneath a blanket of sorrow much is lost
but not completely forsaken
for you see
there’s a certain chemistry in the air
that potentially changes everything

* * *

the scarf is lost
the hair set free
the inward wind & the ocean waves
calling your name
over and over and over again

september two thousand twenty-two
