Vox Populi

A Public Sphere for Poetry, Politics, and Nature

M.A. Sinnhuber: In this Time

of May’s eighty-eight degrees,

humidity hangs,

like bath water on flesh,

needing to be stroked off

as after a swim,

with force— not like

stroking a baby’s head

or a dog’s body,

stroke as in slap,

as in force

your hand

into the pool or ocean,

propel yourself forward—

as in airplane force

or Air Force or forceps

forcing a baby to be born

into May air.
