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 or ripped off by a Twitter or Google employee. The title isĀ The Complete Destruction of a Beautiful City, by Zachery Mohler.

Elitist techie scum is the first line. I laughed out loud in the middle of the street, then moved to avoid getting hit by a bus. The notes on the page’s margins written in pencil by four different hands are about as interesting as the poem.

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.”
