Riding the rails back to Kerouac’s grime-bedecked city A touch of autumn in the air, a clarity of light, warm days giving way to the first rains of the season to remind us that winter is on the way. David Demaree, who used to live on Precita Avenue at the foot of Bernal Heights, brought a Kerouac piece to my attention. There was a little alley in San Francisco back of the Southern Pacific station at Third and Townsend in redbrick of drowsy lazy afternoons with everybody at work in offices in the air you feel the impending rush of their commuter frenzy as soon they’ll be charging en masse from Market and Sansome buildings on foot and in buses and all well dressed thru workingman Frisco of Walkup?? truck drivers and even the poor grime-bemarked Third Street of lost bums even Negroes as hopeless and long left East and meanings of responsibility and try and now all they do is stand there spitting in the broken glass sometimes fifty in one afternoon at Third and Howard and here’s all those Millbrae and San Carlos neat-necktied producers and commuters of America and Steel civilization rushing by with San Francisco Chronicles and green Call-Bulletins and not even enough time to be disdainful they’ve got to catch 130, 132, 134, 136 all the way up to 146 till the time of evening supper in homes of the railroad earth when high in the sky the magic stars ride above the following hotshot freight trains — it’s all in California ... Like the sentence itself, the piece goes on for awhile, life with the bums in flophouses and freight trains and fights in bars. Written back in 1952 or so when Kerouac was in San Francisco and worked as a brakeman on the railroad and lived in a flophouse hotel on Skid Row, Third and Howard. “October in the Railroad Earth” is a minor classic from the Beat Generation. Kerouac was experimenting with writing in a stream of consciousness, no punctuation, trying to catch life in the city. Gerald Nicosia, who wrote an acclaimed biography of Kerouac, thinks “October in the Railroad Earth” should be read aloud to catch the sound of it. [...] that moment was more than 60 Octobers ago: hotshot freight trains, commuters in neckties. A day after I reread “October in the Railroad Earth” I took a walk; I had heard about the most expensive restaurant in San Francisco, and I found it in Mint Plaza, a Japanese place, where the top-of-the-line dinner is $500 a person, not including tax or tip. The man in the suit got on his cell phone and called for an ambulance.
