I miss you already pdx. Just home from a work after party and I crashed on my biked twice. On purpose because I just wanted to make out with the city I love. Its hard to explain but I LOVE pdx…it has been my savior twice in my life. I would not be here but for pdx. I would be gone. dead. that’s how serious I am. Pdx saved my life.
How can a city save your life?
I was desperate, 8th grade, living in the boonies of WA. Something was wrong with me because I could not handle the boonies and being 13.
I moved to PDX. I could handle PDX and being 13.
I left you for college and made many other friends.
I love those friends.
and now I must leave yet again but I will always love you PDX,
I will crash twice for you; licking (not literally) the pavement while your skyline shines brightly over my soul. Weaving in and out of early sunrise center lines; I will enjoy the smell of coffee roasters…..even stumptown.
I will miss you PDX. I hope Philly can stand up to your name. Portland. I already miss you.
