Portland, Oregon by Patrick Jamieson

Bring me back to Portland,

where the brave birds of America
lay waiting, laying promises of
drizzly afternoons.

where the lazy lovers suffer through
a summer, splitting further
into two.

where the twilight falls on suburbs,
from Her driveway. Where the skyline
sits ablaze; where

I named love after you.

Bring me back to Portland,

where the currency is kindness in a
capitalist state; a small wealth
spent on fate.

where simplicity is more than just a
phase, auctioned off on
late July Sundaze.

where the roses hail Columbia, debating
peace and weather, bunching
soulfully together; where

I briefly dreamt I’d stayed.
