on Nob Hill

on Mason
just above Sutter
the twins stroll home
after tea
at three
with all the girls
in the Laurel Court
at the Fairmont
and champagne was served
in honor of their birthday

now in the August afternoon
holding hats against the bay breeze
they hold steady each other
and giggle
and greet

(southside of Nob Hill)
