Posted in Flights of fancy by colettesays on 16 octobre 2012

Take the bus – Line 71 – to Haight & Ashbury.

Take a walk on Haight St./ smell of weed is everywhere. Think green – think about doing space cakes with Eli on Wednesday.

Have lunch at the Magnolia Pub & Brewery : cheddar burger + Loser beer + one press pot of Blue Bottle.

Get a poem at a corner of a street : « Pick a subject. Give your price. Have a poem ». Ask a poem about the poet himself. He’s name is Lynn.

Ride a bus – Haight & Ashbury to Castro : dangerous trip to get down of the hills – amazing view on SF.

Walk down on the 16th St. in Castro until the Adobe Book Shop : the place is quiet. People are kind. Find a children book of poetry and leave.

Take a Cable Car from Mission to Market St.

Meet a black man with his dog – a baby pittbull – take a picture of both of them then go back to the hotel.

Meet Eli later. Let her introduce me to her Compagny. Have some drinks with them at the Rye Cocktail Bar. Drink too much.

Back to the hotel. Have sex with Eli.

Wake up at 6 am. Have a bath in the pool of the hotel. Then take a shower before to meet Alice.

Rainy day. The rain is tough. It’s impossible to find a path between the drops – i’m wet. Sticky clothes and drowning thoughts.

China Town : fishes are big. People are small.

Breakfast at Mama’s in Little Italy. Take an old fashioned crumb + the buttermilk pancakes with strawberries and a latte. The food is fat but good. You have to pass by the kitchen to go to the bathrooms.

Rain again.

Buy an over-sized umbrella in a tiny touristic shop to a tiny chinese woman. 13 dollars. Comfort is priceless.

Cross the way of a gentle woman who says « Ladies you are beautiful. You look like in Vogue ! »

Create a cover of an AbFab song and sing it under the rain – sing out of tune :
« We are walking down the street ! People say « hello ! », they say we’re looking good… But we keep…. Walking down the street… »

Pop by the Beats Museum and the City Lights Bookstore – take the time and read some Beat poetry without buying anything.

Pop by The MoMa book store

Go shopping with Alice at Whole Food : everything looks good. Everything is organic. The prices too.

Rain stops.

Get back to the hotel. Have a relaxing bath and waiting for Eli.
