poetry by j matthew waters

Archive for the tag “shootings”

you can run but you cannot hide

the local news pushes its way
into the palm of my hand
a constant reminder
the information age
continues to shrink the planet

I’d been considering lately
of moving back to Iowa
but reports of violence
creeping in and out of her cities
leads me to conclude
there’s no place left to hide

may two thousand thirteen
