Vox Populi

A Public Sphere for Poetry, Politics, and Nature

Louie Skipper: Staying put, the contented man looks inward

Staying put, the contented man looks inward,

while pilgrims labor

the far reaches to question him.

All that I have

has found another master

and travels with him alone.

A poem in my own hand

that goes on without my help or knowledge.
