poetry by j matthew waters

a life force stuck on idle

the pyramids of the cosmos
far too many light years away
to be seen by any
man-made eye

they’ve been replicated
right here on earth
a parallel reconciliation
understood by ancient egyptians
—the cosmic mystery of

it takes more than mirror images
& wishful thinking
to conquer the stars
more than stepping in & out
of consciousness
on a sofa
talking to your shrink

december two thousand twenty-two
