“Bug vs. Door” - Doc Luben
“I have envied you, how you are remembered for towering, unclaimed potential instead of living to look regret in the face.”
Doc Luben is currently a member of the Portland Poetry Slam scene, originally hailing from Tuscon. He is a stunning performer and writer, and also a damn good guy. This poem just gets better and better as it goes on.
my love, my love, my love
I think I fell a little in love with you,
the first time I heard your voice.
You were talking about maps.
Why is it the ones who most deserve
are always those who’ve
known nothing but goodbye?
I wish I could write you my best poem.
You’re the kind of girl I want all my characters to…
i don’t know the person who wrote this, but it’s all so true.
damn, i love alea.
