8 SAN FRANCISCO HAIKUS

1
TransAmerica
spike hidden by lowish mist 
- a softer skyline


2
artists exhibit
in the buzz of Union Square
- still life, unstill life


3
people gazing down
from Macy's cheesecake cafe
like eighth floor snipers


4
at John's Grill chophouse
we share Dashiel Hammett's
and Sam Spades dinner


5
City Lights bookstore
quieter now than the howling
of the sixties beat



beggar's cardboard sign -
"I will be honest today,
I just need a beer"


7
Latino band plays
on a cold city morning
- warm tunes and hot licks


8
"Alcatraz never
did nothin' for nobody"
- con reminisces
