Vox Populi

A Public Sphere for Poetry, Politics, and Nature

Mike James: In Another Life

he wanted to be
a desperado

like in movies
from the 1930’s

whole world dusty,
black and white

he even loved the
word desperado

how it rhymes
with bandelero

how both chase
the exhale of an o

across the desert
on fast horses

past towns even
ghosts left behind
