poetry by j matthew waters

words cannot describe

Best to become invisible
in times like these.
Everybody knows that.

Jason Reynolds, Long Way Down

my numbness is not
comfortable at all
it is a nondescript void
like a beautiful landscape
hidden by an expanding fog
spreading north & south
and east & west
its deafening denseness
placing a stranglehold
on coherent thought
a lingering listlessness
tearing the world apart

march two thousand twenty-three
