poetry by j matthew waters

the press conference

it’s widely known
there’s no time to lose
yet the urgency
in matters of great importance
seems to matter not

the reverberation
of inaction
rarely stands to reason
instead sucking up time
as if it’s of no
particular consequence

the sheriff
was quoted as saying
the murder case
would never go cold
simply because time was on
his side

december two thousand twenty-two
