Bus 420 out of Haight

January 13th, 2019

Masonic. Parnassus. A statue. A bear suckles her cubs
Poor sleep in doorways
Elderly acknowledge, infirmities ignored.

Who stands in Judah?
Samuel & the golden bear

Dividing line — today we struck Syria

All the sleepers are turning into stone, eyes read
Carved into brittle monuments
But the woke turn hard too / in deep furrows
Baked by the sun
This city full of statues
