Today’s Poem

Thank You Note Cribbed from William Carlos Williams

-For Chad

This is just to say

buenos dias for helping

me get the ticket to Belize

City and telling me to stay

at Los Amigos Youth Hostel

in the island city of Flores,

Guatemala. This was the fountain

of youth Ponce de Leon

was looking for, not Florida.

Irrigator of dreams, this open air

café growing poems, along side

lizards, Aussies, eye-openings,

the Dutch kid DJ hanging

on top of chicken busses,

and the howler monkeys. The beer

was cold enough and the friends

were easy. One day, I’ll pay

you back with a red wheelbarrow

full of avocadoes, Quetzals, and songs.

-Jason Braun
