San Francisco Interviews 

For a month now over the city by the pyramid banks

Your hand in mine we walk out into the renovated Fillmore.

But do not sing those thin blue songs tonight by the taco counter;

The ravens of my soul stand ever-watch on the street corner

Without reason or time they come and ask for more pimp flesh

Never ask the same way, just freak out the sorry soul into sad-sack

Refrains, amid an elite army of thousands marching by the Peace Pagoda.

This maybe is the hidden door to California country:


Men are walking on the moon today, you are still lost in an acid zone

Reflux of hippie heaven. As if a molecular unity in the Haight Ashbury

As the language-dream rumbles on from long ago and far away

And another KPFA savior is preaching a new kind of praxis.
