This is Twin Peaks

Cold air whips my legs

and my dress — too light,

too breezy — floats up, up, up.


Karl sits low in the sky

so low moisture saturates my skin

beading my arms with round droplets.


Somehow sunlight lances

through the fog, a spotlight

on three houses beneath me.


I wonder what makes them special,

why they are chosen among the rest

to shine in the glory of the setting sun.


This is Twin Peaks. Fog so low

I can't see their tips, teenager's

laughter slicing the thick air


sirens squealing in the distance

and beneath us, under our feet

the city of San Francisco stretches.
