poetry by j matthew waters

a subtle invasion

the characters are neither human
nor inanimate objects
and they have quickly learned
all the languages of the world

the angle of the sun has changed
for better or worse
exposing the weakness of the old
and the superiority of the new

to be subservient or not
requires careful contemplation
whether inside your own mind
or out in the great wide open
