    "After class Thursday nights

    the students meet at the Philosopher’s Club.

    It’s right around the corner from the streetcar tracks

    at the West Portal tunnel. No one bothers

    to check I.D.s. Five or six of them

    get shooters and talk — about sex, usually.

    Let me tell you about this dildo I bought,

    one girl says. She describes how it looks

    when all the gadgets attached to it are going at once."
