Vox Populi: A Public Sphere for Politics and Poetry

Mike James: What I Know About Poetry

 

some things keep happening

 

a rock rolls down a hill, bounces, bounces, rolls along

makes a sound every time it bumps the dirt

cracks itself and the silence

the cracks stay

 

the rock rolls until it doesn’t

until it finds a ditch

a small rock pile

 

over time, the ditch might fill up

the rock pile might make a mountain

the cracks stay

    Nice job, Mike. The cracks take on interesting shapes like clouds…
