poetry by j matthew waters

Archive for the tag “monk”

unearthing old stories

behind the hermit’s gate
stories are being told
transcribed and archived
like nobody’s business

free passes do not exist
but those who slip inside
are put to the test
and ever seldom leave

there are grottos and graffiti
in need of attention
improved upon by signs
of the cross and hail marys

although spoken words
were outlawed long ago
they remain alive and well
buried deep underground

may two thousand eighteen
