A Tour of San Francisco's Broken Buildings...

I'm visiting San Francisco. I'm there with Susy, who is also Daniel. We are downtown and walking up some very large hills, towards nothing in particular. I'm showing off the view and talking about the buildings we pass. We are just walking until we find something worth stopping for.
This first arrives in the form of a ragged building, once occupied by friends of mine, now an open-air market. It's very tall and labyrinthine but I remember how to get between the floors. We're really excited because there is so much to see here. Costumes, make-up, shoes, glitter. I don't have money to spend, but I'm so excited, I can't help myself. Plus, everything is super inexpensive.
I also find a tattoo artist who's work is unlike any I've ever seen. He does rainbowy, crystal geometries that snake and wind beautifully. I grab a card and try to find my phone so I can call and make an appointment while I'm visiting.
We pause to enjoy the view and smoke a joint. I'm stuck in a moment of awkwardness when a police officer comes over and talks with me. He doesn't say much, but he points out the fact that I left my bag open and there is a bag of herb hanging out of it. Looking him in the eye with a sheepish smile, I zip the backpack up. "I'll just take care of that, sir." I say and he sort of laughs and wanders on. Ah San Francisco...
We're ready to leave, but first we have to find our way out. I'm confident, but as we wend our way through the maze of stalls and rooms and strange stairwells, I realize I have no idea where I am. Eventually we make it to the ground floor and we're on our way out when I run into Matty. He's working in the store at ground level. I'm surprised, but as we talk, a memory sinks in that I knew he worked here... or at least another location of this store. I'm perusing perfumes, looking for a patchouli, sandalwood blend that's my favorite. He says it's discontinued.
I head out of the store and find a little cubby-hole in the broken concrete of the damaged foundation. I'm tired and I want a place to rest. I get inside the space and it's now got a bathtub in it that I'm sitting in. But the bathtub is clear so people can see me as they walk past. I'm comfortably lounging in this see-through bathtub in a coffin-sized space in the concrete. It feels very safe and is also a little kinky. Guys who notice me give an extra double-take and look really turned on.
Eventually we continue wandering. We've reached the edge of the city and it's a little more residential. We're traveling faster now, no longer walking, but sort of hovering. We pass by mansions and classic bay architecture while I give a brief tour.
We head up a familiar block, but when we arrive at the destination, we find it's nothing but a four-story hole in the ground. It used to be my home - a very sentimental place. In my mind, it's both Sutter House, in San Fran, and the Bond Cave in Seattle. I'm crushed. There is still a small section of the building still standing, so we climb down into the vacant ground. It's viney and stagnant, full of dry moss and dead brambles. The remaining part of the architecture is somewhat ruined, but someone is still living here. He has a stuffed housecat where the entry used to be. We notice that there are tons of mushrooms growing all over the dead wood and the ground. They look like cyanescens from a distance but when we get closer, they're not. It's not the right season anyway, I should have known.
The man who lives in the fragmented house comes out to see what we're up to, and it's Shanuwa. We give him hugs and he invites us in. I wander through the remaining architecture, disgusted that such a beautiful building could be neglected and forgotten and destroyed this way.
