poetry by j matthew waters

born again

delighted by the findings
I begin to believe my decline
may soon be slowed
or absolutely reversed

how can this be
[I rhetorically ask]
is it not true there is no undoing
the advancement of the
universe itself

is there no unwinding
forward progression
once the wheels
are put into motion

how can it be
I can crawl back inside
that in which I first arrived
