Farming In San Francisco is a compendium of original, lyrical poetry by Daniel Richman in celebration of the city in which he has lived, loved, worked, and played in for thirty years. These are poems that focus upon the people of these famed American city set on the seashore of the great Pacific. Loves and Fishes: It rained all day/upsetting the crows/on the cross/atop Saint Phillip's Church,/who leaned east/and leaned west/in search of a dry inch.//The peak grew sharper/by the hour/and darker/the choked gutters dropping cold sheets/And when the ladies left/they stepped in lakes.//But remember,/lovers of the sun,/each drop becomes a crumb.
