Corner of 31st, Portland, OR

Rain downtown Northwest city
I become
no one again
a bum sitting under a bridge writing
in dirty poncho
by a fountain
at Portland’s Saturday Market
on the cover of Time Magazine: the end
of the American West
just as the man read next to me
on the bus, “Post-American society
and the end of the west”
