north beach, san francisco

before we left home

you said the streets

here would flow

with gold.


you told us

we could keep our names

if we wanted

& then you changed



you promised

we would go back

every year


remember every word

we heard

thru the walls & waters

of the womb


you never mentioned

that memory works

like a cranky camera:


chaos of stops

& starts


awkward stills

drained of warmth

the sepia of desire
