Smell of the Sea in GGP: A Bike Ride, in Haiku

Capturing early morning experiences in San Francisco, poetically.

Rollerskaters dance
Jazz echoes in the tunnel
Lindy hoppers swing

Smell of the sea blows
Mini boats zip in the lake
Zoom past buffalo

I meet the ocean
Lining the road like hedges
Surfers slip on suits

To the zoo and back
Retreating into the park
Muni buses rest

To the panhandle
Shopping carts in cop car’s trunk
Hippies braiding hair

Dogs, dogs, pulled in carts
Calls of my name, every time
It’s the license plate

This city makes me smile every day.
