Vox Populi

A Public Sphere for Poetry, Politics, and Nature

John Samuel Tieman: On a Bus in Mexico City

with a profile off an Aztec stelae
on the Reforma bus the young
mother breastfeeds her baby
her modesty barely
served by her shawl
her breast though perfect is not
.
as striking as her eyes
which are distant and more
focused on – What? – than the child
or even the end of the line
Glorieta De Insurgentes
calls the driver as black strands
.
of her hair fall into her eyes
and she doesn’t brush them away
—–
