Unanticipated Consequence: Revolutionary ConTEXTing Free Verse Poem

December 5, 2014

The unanticipated consequence
of having
a heart that’s breaking,
a soul that searching,
and a mind that’s wondering,
is that a view
of San Francisco bay
at sunset
absolutely flat lines

No emotions.
No memories.
No smiles.
No desiring Allejandro’s.
No craving
walking down Columbus Street
or North Beach to find some pasta
or cannoli.
No wishing for family style
in Chinatown.

Oh wait!
There IS a memory.
A blond haired,
with his back to the Golden Gate Bridge,
Russell Wilson jersey repping,
hands raised
in the air,
middle fingers

F the Whiners.
F the Quakes.
F the A’s.
And the Giants.
F San Francisco.

But mostly,
F the Whiners.
