For a San Franciscan, Seeking Tranquility

Each place, a book once said,
is vibrating with a special energy vortex;

and then went on to some other nonsense
before decomposing on a Goodwill arm rest.

But now as travels teach
and lie as easily as human smiles,
and feelings guide about as well as
Lonely Planet files

we might as well get on board
with cosmic crystal projections–

for it’s New Orleans and San Franciscans
radiate domestic perfection.

And hold in heights the proper
bits of mortal hesitation

before plunging down
the sloping town
and ending reborn
with the fishes.
