A Night in North Beach
A few images of our night in North Beach--there's Lawnboy on the shelves at City Lights--before it all turned creepy and sour. I can tell Mark's writing an account of things just now. I don't have enough perspective to tell the complicated story just yet--what to leave in, what to leave out. And it seems like it should be funny in the telling, but it still isn't funny at all. Let's just say we walked into a scene straight from The Sopranos, or a David Lynch movie, or something by Flannery O'Connor, and though we got away without getting beaten up or killed, we were told by the owner of a certain restaurant that we belonged "on the other side of town, in the Castro." Among much uglier things, which I don't have the energy to reproduce just yet.

And here for more thoughts.
