poetry by j matthew waters

the firing squad

we are awful villains
and we know it
—animal instincts
as brutal as any
species on earth

kill and conquer
all along the way
rock & roll blaring
only to enhance
the effectiveness

new genres sprout
giving a voice
to the those silenced
by inhumane ways

february two thousand twenty-three
