National Poetry Month rolls on. We continue with another poem from yesterday's featured poet, Marie Loeffler. This poem took me instantly to the Chicago hotel lobby. Thanks again to Marie for her participation in the Poetry Month blog roll!
Cape Cod (The Drake Hotel, Chicago, IL)* by Marie Loeffler
"Lets Get Lost"
lilts from a speaker
as the bartender
shines a martini glass,
and we chat
about Chet Baker's
but the smooth
brandy of that voice.
*Cape Cod was previously published in Third Wednesday
