Street Poetry

Beautiful city by zachery

This is what street poetry looks like in San Francisco.

I picked this up off the ground on Lombard and Fillmore today. I can only assume it was taped to a telephone pole and slid off during the brief rain. The title isĀ The Complete Destruction of a Beautiful City, by Zachery Mohler.

I brought it to the bookstore to discuss how the cadence and randomness appear to be drug induced.

“So does your desire to pick the dirty thing up,” said my friend.

Elitist techie scum is the first line. . The notes on the page’s margins written in pencil by four different hands are about as interesting as the poem. My pic wasn’t able to pick up the best parts.

When my boyfriend got home, he set down his briefcase to look at the water soaked mud stained paper.

“Oh, look. You brought home more trash.”
