Within the last year there has been a greater visible police presence all over the city of San Francisco. What was once tolerated and even considered part of the local culture, or ambiance, if you will, is no longer tolerated. This includes street vending street food and open marijuana consumption.
With the influx of Tech Boomers and rising housing costs, also came this new intolerance. No coincidence!
Trapped in a capsule unable to breathe,
My mind grapples with thoughts beyond years in solitary,
My pen is my friend and this I know,
My imagination explodes as my environment proves weary.
Buildings constructed to strip one’s humynity,
Ravaging the mind in ways that leave no physical marks,
The public unaware of this dugeonization,
If this were a physical act my limbs would be fed to sharks.
