Old streetcars on Market Street throw ghosts of family at my feet Gramps and Dad are motormen, Vernon punches tickets, he’ll let me ride right on the steps, door open, racing down those roaring tracks, wheels wobbling and air horn blasting, memories roll past just like fog through the Golden Gate as fast as the years left them all behind what I don’t see is myself a girl again, I’m the one who stayed but I still change and grow while their lives are remembered they’ll always look the same, yes those streetcars on Market Street even if I look away I see them waving
