did you read that s.f.
is too expensive
for teachers to live
except in tiny rent-controlled flats
shared out by 5 or 6 roommates
yes? then come to sac!
cool place, lively arts community
lots of uber hip restaurants and shops
affordable as yet as fuck
and if you complain about the late-summer heat
well at least it's a dry heat
as you combust in your work clothes
waiting for the light to change
on a crowded midtown corner
watching the pretty transgender woman
cross the street to the other side
