Portland Water

from a Portland street while waiting to be hit by a bus
Morning shower

Washing over me warm

Portland’s wettest from rivers

From mountains and sky


Portland’s germs from

A Thousand hands sharing

And traveling Portland’s water

Making its coffee

Which I take in


Breathing Portland’s air

Touching its soil and

Eating its food

Watered by its rains

Food touched

By Portland hands

Washed in Portland’s water


City of Bridges over water

Over streets

City built by its water

Stand under its warmth

Drink in Portland
