poetry by j matthew waters

the ambiguous participant

I’ve been uninspired of late
or so the study people tell me

I keep giving these telephone interviews
a human voice on the other end

I call them by their first names
the ones that they give me [anyway]
but after hanging up I wonder
if it was actually artificial intelligence
I was talking to

maybe I give them too much information
or maybe my answers are hogwash
figments of my own
intelligent imagination
ones that keeps digressing
[or so they tell me]
into potential self-destruction

march two thousand twenty-three
