Vox Populi

A Public Sphere for Poetry, Politics, and Nature

Chard deNiord: Poetry

The secret I have no say

in keeping is safe with me

and everyone else who sees

himself in the space between

the stars.  

How to tell

what can’t be said?

“Just

sing,” she said.

“I like

the one about the frog.”

So I did to her brief

ecstatic applause.
