making our way to new york city – j matthew waters

so here we go again
chasing tornados across the country
just when we thought the worst
of the season had ended

what we’re finding is nothing
ever ends but simply
segues into a new strain
jumping from seattle to dallas
bouncing up north to chicago
then quickly diving back down
all the way to new orleans

we never tire traveling county to county
pursuing storms and trying
to stay ahead of the curve
doing what we can to save lives
whether it’s an entire small town
directly in the path of the beast
or that proverbial cat stuck in a tree

april two thousand twenty

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
