restaurants and poems:
there are four restaurants in portland i've fallen madly in love with:
1. (this is my favorite restaurant) screen door: their vegetables include: lacinato kale & roasted red pepper casserole w/ leeks, parmesan & herbed ricotta cheeses, topped w/ walla walla onion cream sauce and butternut squash bread pudding w/ caramelized onion & fontina cheese topped w/ leek cream.
2. delta: best collard greens i've ever had.
3. pine state biscuits: second best collard greens
4. the farm: i had the roasted beet salad with beet wedges and toasted pecans tossed with baby greens, walnut oil vinaigrette and garnished with goat cheese and chives.
emily kendal frey: the grief performance: i am not / as beautiful as that / terrarium
andrea rexilius: to be human is to be a conversation: here will i spell me out / the world / shucked from my own skin
james gendron: money poems: to clean the dirty water: more water. / our low, rough voices drift / over the shacks of millionaires.
pam rehm: small works:
forget me not
i walk from morning
into my ghost
a silent pulling
road to you
is it memory or
we are reduced to
