18th near South Van Ness

This guy reminded me of something I wrote a while back, here's just a piece of it:

My street stinks in the rain. The rain doesn’t clean the city up it just grounds the filth into the sidewalk. And is that why you left the rain this time? So I could see how ugly San Francisco can be? Well it didn’t work. Because just yesterday I saw a man fall asleep in the rain on my street and instead of waking up his body just became part of the sidewalk. The rain pounded him into the shitty cement and it’s all sparkly where he used to lay.
