Where Poets Poem #4

Brandon Speck
Portland, Oregon

From Brandon:

I thought I’d share where I have been poem-ing for the last two days. I have been traveling across the country for almost a month now and this is the couch I’ve been settling while in Boston.

This Hedonism

This hedonism
of hash-smoking,
root beer float-slurping,
and cheap ale guzzling.
Finding our drunken sleep
on couches and carpets
at our friends’ places down south.

I never regret these sugar hangovers.
I will never not be in love with
this momentum
of always going somewhere else,
but having it feel like going nowhere
in particular.
