new poem, just because
    #3855310 - 03/02/05 02:36 AM (16 years, 10 months ago)

You can take the Berkeley bart,
rocket westward under bend of bay
past Star Wars droids, past Chinese tankers.
Top speed for twenty minutes,
then step outside into the
largest work of art you?ve ever seen.

Someone, some golden race of people handcrafted this city,
so that today you can get high and wander through its rapid-fire districts?
its embarcaderos and its haights, endless blocks of human strata.
No map or destination here?you?ve reached it?
And the city pulls you along?

Much madness has spun itself
off these simmering terraced acres?
rainbow arcs exploding out
to stoke up coals in the greater world.
Echoes of Kesey, Garcia still ring
off the wood-carved houses
some sixty years old.

You?re not a tourist here, you?re an explorer.
rolling through a densely packed maze of novelty.
minutes off the bart you see
the diamond-cut tap dancer
the crack-addicted chess
the newspapercase drummer, hello everybody!
the mad artists brimming with wrought iron plans?
the overripe scholars descending from privelage.
The air is heavy but you feel at ease
as the city pulls you along.

Not a big fan of such unending prose but sounds well developed. Thanks for sharing.

no, thank YOU for the free watermelon picture.  She looks exactly like a girl I used to know, I mean exactly. 

Off to write a paper now  :tongue:
