Literary San Francisco: Stanyan Street and Other Sorrows
"I know the hills
     and the gullys of your body
          the curves
               the turns.

"I have total recall of you
and Stanyan Street
because I know it will be important later.

"It's quiet now.
Only the clock
moving toward rejection tomorrow
breaks the stillness."

from "Stanyan Street and Other Sorrows," by Rod McKuen
