Vox Populi

A Public Sphere for Poetry, Politics, and Nature

John Samuel Tieman: Marriage

that moment the cloud comes
and stays and makes you glad
you brought a windbreaker
that moment when you know
you did this one thing right

you and your wife split a nosh
in a clearing
a magpie snags a crumb
and joins you two
to the mountain

the magpie goes and soon
the cloud and the chill
and even the mountain will go
your wife hangs her jacket
on an aspen
