poetry by j matthew waters

blissful indifference

last night I heard volcanoes are erupting
on three continents
but I didn’t bother to google which ones

and then this morning I saw some geyser
is spewing god knows what into outer space
from one of jupiter’s moons
but I didn’t bother to read which one

back in my little neck of the woods
not much seems to be happening
but I suppose if I dig hard enough
I’d uncover all kinds of dirt
I really rather not know about

may two thousand twenty-three
