poetry by j matthew waters

backward progression

I am a stone
skipping across the pond
flung by a boy
practicing his craft

I am a boomerang
aerodynamic & deadly
expertly thrown
by ancient hunters

I am a missile
launched into space
heat seeking its target
with total abandon

january two thousand twenty-three
