    What is MUNI Haiku?

    MUNI is the San Francisco Municipal Railway. MUNI Haiku celebrates and shakes a fist at all that is good, bad and curious about SF public transit.

    The world-famous and locally-reviled fleet is made up of gas buses, electric buses, connector buses, historic streetcars, lightrail trains and the iconic cable cars. It's complemented in some parts of town by BART, the subway that connects SF to its outskirts.The creator of this site absolutely worships the Italian orange F Markets.

    crowded twenty-two,
    oh my god, what is that smell?
    b.o, sweat, dog, fish

    22 Fillmore [+]

    The 22 makes
    me old and cranky. Dang kids!
    Turn off your music!
    -Heather S.


    What’s worse than MUNI
    on a rainy day? I ask
    in jest; nothing is.
    -Heather S.


    my body is sore
    compassionate twenty-two
    steaming tub awaits
    -paul brown @ tawdrytalk.com


    rain on, O tempest
    my groceries will stay dry
    twenty-two smells like wet shoes
    –paul brown @ tawdrytalk.com


    Waiting at Safeway
    Maybe I will walk instead
    Fillmore is moon lit


    On the twenty-two
    wheel chair is coming on board
    Damn – now I must stand


    “going to A.A.
    N.A., C.A., triple A
    when I get a car.”
    – poeticpolitics
    (Fn1: quoting old man named Charles who kissed my hand, Sunday 3/31/08)


    On va à la Baie
    Nouveau, le terminus est
    Deux stations plus tôt.
    -Didier Laget


    Drenched in sun
    Burnt morning coffee


    Church and 16th Street
    16th Street and Valencia
    16th and Mission


    drunk, the 22
    is like a magic ferry
    wait if you believe


    Have you hugged your bus
    Driver lately? You really
    Shouldn’t. That’s not safe.


    Someone ought to tell
    That kid not to touch any
    Surfaces in here.


    Take a shower, please,
    Mr. Bus Driver, ’cause it’s
    Getting hard to breathe.


    Tanked as you may be
    You’re never the most drunk one
    on the 22

    Waited forever.
    And then you showed up for me.
    Seven in a row.

    Twenty-two Fillmore
    Get in hold on look ahead
    uninviting ride

    seeking pretty boys
    will you go to Castro? —No!
    stale Fillmore coffee.
    —Matthue Roth

    The next 22
    prophesied with GPS.
    This is the future.
