poetry by j matthew waters

second semester lit

end the madness and make old things new again

so many overused words
can you name one
will you dare
may I start with ominous
or something less
like life or death

it matters not which words
become misused
or misunderstood
be it recently
or centuries ago
reinvented by the likes
of poetic artisans

november two thousand twenty-two
