gemini hood (ode to the mission)

(san francisco, 2015)

i'm not really feeling it

when they call you "the mish"

you are "la misión"

barrio de mi corazón

"mish" sounds too much like "mush"

& you are not a fondue melting pot

you are a muffin tin

with each compartment

its own flavor

why are mission & valencia streets

so different? they're just

1 block over: gemini hood

1 twin wants to take over

but 2 brothers will

fight once in a while though


tension between 2 streets

drama between peace & domination

peace is never submissive

never backs down
