poetry by j matthew waters

breaking the habit

you can only go so far
singing the same song
the goose with the gander
with too much regularity
beating down the same path
praising mediocrity
—but as for the newness
of tomorrow
it is rarely considered
like a stepchild believing
every moment in time
resides in and of itself

february two thousand twenty-three
