White Girl,
Market at Van Ness,
Heels to drag,
Discombobulated.
Air all soft around,
Hear the man singing,
Inclines and wires,
Telegraph Avenue.

Look away and she's eastbound, out of sight.

Dropped here,
By the hand of the Astronaut,
Builder of the pyramids,
The man from outer space.
Innocent farmgirl,
Raised by the aliens,
Out in Northridge,
Out in the larger world.

Look away and she's eastbound, out of sight.

    General Comment:I am thinking that he passed an attractive 'White Girl" at "Market and Van Ness" then he gets distracted "Hear the man singing" and she is gone "Look away and she's eastbound, out of sight.".

    Then he imagine that she was an alien:
    "Dropped here,
    By the hand of the Astronaut,
    Builder of the pyramids,
    The man from outer space.
    Innocent farmgirl,
    Raised by the aliens,"

    Strange.

    General Comment:" Saw a girl in New York, she moved to San Francisco, went out to visit her, realized she was perhaps not the sanest person I had ever met in my life. I told her she was like those children raised by wolves, only she was raised by the aliens. She had this sort of sweet and wholesome thing to her, and this huge despairing darkness beneath the surface. I believe she is a schoolteacher now.

    The White Girl part came from reading a newspaper and realizing that whenever a news item involved a black girl, she was described as a Black Girl, but when there was an item about a White Girl, she was described simply as a Girl. "
