Poetry Friday: John Brehm, Portland Poet

IMG_1077

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
PERFECTIONISM

she said and I said
make sure you get

the right one—
which brought forth

such perfect laughter
from her perfect heart.
