poetry by j matthew waters

Archive for the tag “passport”


off to half a world away
a place never set foot upon
I pray she will accept me

I keep checking my pockets
for identification
but they’re empty now
forever surrendered to the state

I was one of the first
to sign up for mission to mars
my resume somehow
lost in the shuffle
leaving me rethinking
what little options remain

december two thousand seventeen
