Drive-by 18

Through the stout heart of Oakland
via Martin Luther King, Jr Way

Coming Home


Some man's castle
 protecting fence and dog
Next a moat

A palimpsest of graffiti

A gloomy gloaming in Spring

A ghost town welcome

Greyhound Bus Station where
Allen Ginsberg worked in the 1950s,
"Baggage Room at Greyhound" was
 included in HOWL & Other Poems

Today it's an environment
of total surveillance,
Cameras, microphones,
gunshot detectors

Cannabis helps everyone
Grin and bear it

You're running
You're running
You're running Away

Interesting looking lady
wonder if she's African

 We're waiting for buses
at the transit hub

 Her cowl holds her smart tablet
no hands needed

Here's my ride
the #18 bus

Another colorful lady
gets on board

 She twigged
I was taking a shot but
doesn't seem to mind

uber alles

Unusual puddles
We had a flash shower
this April morning

Semi-liberated zone

Marcus Books
Black struggle

Near MacArthur BART station
Human storage units
renting soon
