Poetry. With stark and honest imagery, these poems convey the beauty, wonder, and despair of urban life, bringing San Francisco and its denizens alive with compassionate and insightful portraits of the human condition. Taylor's poems are the songs of streets and bars and celebrate the manifold humanity of the city. "These are poems that feel just like San Francisco. They are of a beauty abandoned and rolling and screaming under the wheels of headlights in the Tenderloin night"—Mark Eitzel, American Music Club.
