Vox Populi

A Public Sphere for Poetry, Nature, and Politics

Mike James: Twenty Years In, Still Trying To Meditate

nothing happens
then it happens again

a fly buzzes on one side of the window
wind blows against the other side

a car passes
then a motorcyle

the fly stops
or moves on

open my eyes
there’s sunlight

close them again
it’s still there
