Graffiti


It’s all around me
everyday I walk by
your poetic pain
spray painted in vain

or it is art
thought  out

who am I to say
on my way
to my ivory tower

what is on this wall
that comes
from your colourful soul.

Some graffiti can be quite beautiful and take a lot of talent to produce, I think. I can appreciate it in the right setting. Sometimes I wonder if these 'artists' were given a canvas in a studio somewhere what they could produce....

some see graffiti as weeds, to be rooted out, glossed, denied.

some see weeds as inexorable, inescapable expressions of life, no matter the concrete squares we box the earth with.

if so....
