Vox Populi

A Public Sphere for Poetry, Politics, and Nature

Sharon Doubiago: Bombed

I lie behind your face

looking up in the dark.

Am earth. Was


me. Am I


around the world, precisely

you. For a second we know

not plane     not war     not suicide

but you and me

behind the wave, leaf

in the tree, small pile of rocks

my head in the cluster

a car crossing the bridge


For a second I know not us

but Earth

spinning in the dark
