Strolling Oakland: Lowest Broadway

On Broadway

My constitutional rights:
freedom of movement,
freedom of speech

Broadway begins at the water
the original old Oakland

Some people have
odd imaginings

Whatever floats
your toy boat

It runs under
the dollar sign


 Jesus Christ was a man 
a hard working man
                   --Woody Guthrie

 Brass doors
a defunct brasserie


 Eighties glamour

 Oakland embraces hedonism
almost sybaritic 

 A soul food restaurant
 for vegans

 And assorted 

and tesserae
of a fragmented town

 Highway Installation
 by Richard Serra

 Cannabis dispensary
across from Oakland Police

 Splendors of Oakland
 Lower Broadway style
