“Carl” the Fog

Just a plea, to resist the branding © of nature, including the mysterious Fog of San Francisco.

@KarlTheFog (Twitter account) is fun, in a trivial way, but a wholly inept (and in-apt) branding of our city’s fog.

But if you insist, or can’t resist, may I suggest, as more apt (or ept):

“Carl” the Fog.

The fog comes
on little cat feet.

It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.
