Poetry Friday: John Brehm, Portland Poet


Welcome to Poetry Friday, hosted today by Elizabeth Steinglass.

One of the coolest things in the Portland area is the Ledding Library which sponsors  poetry readings and  poetry workshops.  I have taken two since October. This Saturday, John Brehm will be holding a workshop, “Poetic Closure”.

So today, a poem by John Brehm:

On the Subway Platform by John Brehm

    —for Kate

Where are you going I said
and she said I’m going

to look for a book
and I said what kind

of book? A book on

she said and I said
make sure you get

the right one—
which brought forth

such perfect laughter
from her perfect heart.
