You are here

Coming Back to Cali (August 2015)

For the third 
time since 
I first saw you 
 
Girls in leather 
chaps whipping 
men dressed like fairies
 
DJs bumpin 
beats and who knows
what else in the dark 
 
foggy mornings 
in the sunset 
pushing clouds 
 
over Twin Peaks 
down the Castro 
somehow into 
 
thin air as 
it finally hits 
the Mission
 
of my life 
has been to champion 
this city's soul 
 
beyond its borders 
into the pale 
artificially fed 
 
heart of a 
bloody empire 
which may 
 
have bloodied me 
for a moment 
but holds no hope 
 
(like rock 
facing water) 
of standing
 
alone I return 
chasing phantasms 
eager wandering 
 
now with new tricks 
added improved 
updated formula 
 
same package 
same great taste 
now fifty percent 
 
extra!
