San Francisco, August 1967

Today for day 25 of Nanaporno, I am posting an epistolary poem for Rommy’s prompt: Virtue or Vice. She lists for us the seven heavenly virtues and the seven deadly sins. I am letting my old muse, Dorian Gray, speak for me.
I am continuing to hang with the Toads.

San Francisco, August 1967
“I like persons better than principles, and I like persons with no principles better than anything else in the world.” Oscar Wilde 

My Dear Arthur,
I am posting you a fast letter
from this right raucous lass of a city,
San Francisco.
A city of lust, sloth, gluttony –
All the vices one could ask for
And more.
The city abounds with restaurants,
from food eaten out of hand on the streets
to the poshest of restaurants,
some even on a par with my beloved Café Royale.
There is a “head” shop in an area called
The Haight.
One can buy any drug imaginable.
It is a sweet shop for adults!
The young people are beautiful –
Restless, peace eating, free lovers.
I shall devour them Arthur.
I shall eat and lick and fuck
them every one.
I am having a party tonight.
I wish you could be there to enjoy
them with me.
How you would delight in them.
I must go – time waits for no man, ha.ha.
Eternally yours,
Dorian
