San Francisco Boom

Sound and sight from a longtime poet-resident of San Francisco

Barbara Berman

Buzz saws cacophonous mega-hums on west side avenues.

Beloveds and I are safe for complicated reasons.

Sky beyond our deck still reminds me of late-day Arles.

All around. Beyond. Dying in creatively vicious ways.


The screwed out here one kind of huge lewd

ringing rising on a bright, dry afternoon.


Barbara Berman is the senior poetry reviewer for The Daily Rumpus. She has work forthcoming in 99 Poems for the 99 Percent, out July from 99:The Press.
