smeared dreams
left as graffiti
on the sides of buildings
tears falling
worn out hopes
pictures of life
pictures of death
artists extraordinaire
where is their fame
talent yet dulled
by the realities of life
splashes red, yellow, green
dimmed by black figures
walking hand in hand
on the lonely walkways of life

    That takes a sad view of the art of tagging and gives a sense of dark the artists are protesting about. Giving their world the color they miss in life. Very thought provoking

    I had not thought of it in that way Sally so you’ve made me stop and think deeply about this. What a fantastic thing for a poet to do! Wonderful work my dear friend.
