The Ongoing Poem Series About the Summer of 2006 Continues Today on Poetry Thursday

June 12, 2006
This morning as I crossed Jones

I happened to look up the incline
and there was a cable car
sitting on California Street
right at the top of the hill
Because it was at the crest
it was perfectly silhouetted
against a soft pale yellow sky
and even with my poor vision
I could see all the little people inside
and the poles and slats and window frames
the whole thing like a tiny painting or stage set
