simplicity

steve mcqueen drove that mustang
set san francisco back a shiny penny
midday sun a-shining
a bullet
man that man was cool.
Cool like HoJos before it was abbreviated,
back when turquoise and coral
were the apex of style
when tripping was a means of transport.
slow down, you move too fast.
Too fast for this city by the bay
where we’d get lost twenty years later –
Can’t get back there
no matter which road we take.
