    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.

    back for a short time
    muni- just as i left it
    dont really miss it

    38 Geary [+]

    muni, i shall miss
    the love/hate relationship
    though there was more hate


    is reminiscent:
    the schoolbus. screaming, puking
    cant wait to get home


    eighteen, forty-sixth
    loney bus, lonely district
    bombing down forty-sixth


    loaded, campus-bound
    what once a destination
    now a frustration


    pings, sci-fi noises
    1 California zooms by
    not 1am yet


    invisible stops
    the unknowing wait for them
    it’s an express bus!

    the morning express
    suits, heels- even casual
    all seem unhappy


    eh aren’t you afraid
    that you’ll fall off? tourist asks
    I prefer to stand


    twenty-eight, nineteenth
    from SFO with suitcase
    cannot be subtle


    eighteen makes wrong turn
    “my first time”, driver replies
    i give directions


    half a dozen trains
    come down judah all at once
    late for work again


    ‘ol O’Shaughnessy
    how many syllables, four?
    i cannot decide


    I have now become
    one of those san franciscans
    Who rides for one block

    S Shuttle, or K?
    humans, computers dont know
    send it back! he says


    MUNI, new website
    almost contemporary
    service does not change


    last one before owl
    lucky to get it, raining
    though smelt of vomit

    hey there twenty-nine
    where do you go after six
    I found out last night


    five fulton, late night
    twentieth to fourty-third
    not a single stop

    party on the N
    busted before it started
    sorry, newmindspace
