Matt Hetherington / Poetry

Wake

i want, i want, i want
whatever it might be
that i happen to be wanting

today it is a view
uninterrupted
of where the desert meets the sea

instead what i get
is a plane-flight over rivers of roads
superb ideas that pass like smoke
and birds that cut nothing

i won’t take my time
i’ll leave it behind me
like the wake some hallowed hand creates
floating every bit of the way

  1. I’ve been following your work for some time now, i do love your style in writing. I really love poetry and yours intrigue me.

    Thanks for sharing.

    I was hoping, if you’ve got the time, maybe you’d take a look at my latest post perhaps? I would love some thoughts, positive feedback and/or constructive criticism. It’s titled “The Physics of my Magical Black Hair” and is Part 3 of my project I’ve called “Black Enough”:

    I really do hope you enjoy it and are blessed to share 🙂

    God bless,
    Makhala.
