I'm Drunk Right Now

Posted by Anonymous on Sun, Jul 29, 2012 at 8:10 PM

Another Portland night and drunk, drunk, drunk. What's new, Portland? I used to love the feeling of being drunk while walking down your streets, it just seemed to fit. It was so perfect, knowing that others had been here before me, likely more drunk and peered into the same windows surrounded by brick. Now, it's different and the mood has changed. It ain't fun no more, it's intolerable. I drive 'round and around, looking through my road-scratched window of my '89 Volvo sedan. I love my car bitches, don't think otherwise. But I drive around, looking at how my Portland has changed. It used to be a dirty down, dingy and seedy with corners you'd only turn with your doors looked. Dealers literally stopping you as you drove down the street, standing in front of your car to leave you no choice. Hookers on Alberta and MLK, thrift stores with actual deals, bars that felt like you stepped back in time 50 years... all gone now. There ain't nothing to drink for, except for the sake of drinking itself and how truly sad that fact is. This new Portland, I don't know and don't take kindly to... the old one, I miss dearly. Time for another drink and a smoke, for you fuckers wouldn't know...
