Richard Brautigan - San Francisco

This poem was found written on a paper bag by Richard
Brautigan in a laundromat in San Francisco.  The author is unknown.

By accident, you put
Your money in my
Machine (#4)
By accident, I put
My money in another
Machine (#6)
On purpose, I put
Your clothes in the 
Empty machine full
Of water and no
Clothes

It was lonely.

San Francisco - Comments and Information

Poet: Richard Brautigan
Poem: San Francisco

Comment 1 of 1, added on October 27th, 2005 at 4:41 PM.

Seems a tad unfair that this constitutes half of the Brautigan collection here: seeing as he did not even write it.

BOO, FOREVER
Spinning like a ghost
on the bottom of a
top,
I'm haunted by all
the space that I
will live without
you.

Now thats a Brautigan poem.

A LYRICAL WANT, AN ENDOCRINE GLAND FANCY

A lyrical want, an endocrine gland fancy,
a telescope that I thought had no thorns
have lead me to a pain that I cannot pronounce.
It gathers around me like a convention of translators
for a language that does not exist with all those meetings
to attend.

And that's another one.



Richard from United Kingdom
