Here is a video of Walt Curtis, Portland poet, author of Mala Noche reading one of his poems.
Walt and Aimee and Dusty and I drove out to Sauvie Island in early February. It was a cold, misty,dark sky day and absolutely beautiful. The farmers' freshly plowed dark fields, the ancient bare oak trees everywhere, ships passing by in the mist, geese in great flocks, old barns covered with moss. We drove in Walt's old car down empty country roads for hours. We talked, Walt told stories. A good day.
