(San Francisco)

Fillmore alleyway window frame fat woman,
drunken, at kitchen greasy oil-clothed table
half gallon carton of milk and a fifth. Dark,
wrinkled, thick knuckles hold her fast; four pink nails
grip to empty, chipped jelly glass. Through all night
till the bell tolls Sunday reason told go free,
feel breasts young, buttocks hard in new straw and him
come, back by Fleishhacker Zoo under date palms.
Got none but herself, stare from shoe on dustrolls
