Vox Populi

A Public Sphere for Poetry, Politics, and Nature

Dawn Potter: Respectable Woman

No one could mistake me

for a department-store model

but I’ve kept my figure—

not an inch of overflow,

nothing to shock a stare.

Express myself

remains the motto,

but I dowse the spark,

then wait till your eyes click shut.

Secrets are the tale. So

love me.

Just don’t lean in.
