Vox Populi

A Public Sphere for Poetry, Politics, and Nature

Elizabeth Romero: Carrying a Sign

Leaves on the wind circle in the air

Like emissaries from another world

Frantic warnings

No one heeds them, they

Push toward their usual destinations

With their everyday faces

 

The leaves make the street

Wonderful

Without them it would be

Entirely devoted to business

And I would feel like dying

I would have to walk up and down

Carrying a sign:

“bring back the leaves”
