Poetry 101, Day 8: Graffiti

graffitiPhoto by Andy Townend

Graffiti: art, or vandalism? It sometimes seems every flat surface is someone’s canvas. Trains with spray-painted carriages trundle past graffiti-adorned buildings and rattle through illustrated tunnels.

Are you, like me, often inspired by the creativity and audacity of the artist? Or are you outraged by a perceived assault on public decency? Is graffiti a valid means of self-expression for those without a voice, or just the random scribbling of people with nothing better to do? For today’s poem, reflect on what graffiti means to you. Tell the story of a particularly memorable wall. Quote a powerful example of graffiti you’d seen (and feel free to share an image, if you’d like). Or write the poem as if it were itself splashed, for all to see, against the largest wall in town.

GRAFFITI

 Art
On walls
Or street signs
Subway drawings
Colorful and bright
Magically appear
Created during the night
When yesterday they were not there
The imagination has run wild
One man’s art rising from his inner child

HA!  Fifteen, I can’t believe it, fifteen!!  Phew, that’s a record and I know it is because I looked it up.

I don’t know how we did it but we did.  They said it could not be done, no way, no how!

We practiced and practiced until we figured it out.  It was like twisting a balloon dog together.  Boomzee was brilliant, she sketched it out and created the order and whamo bamo worked like a charm.

First Noodles, for obvious reasons, then Shorty, Squishy, Wiggles, Lulu, Yobo, Jingles, Milo, Ditzo, Binky, and the final layer of Chubby (but he lost weight for this), Dimples, Boo Boo, Pepe and Boomzee.

Yup that’s fifteen alright…fifteen clowns fit in a car!  Look it up, we’re in the Bozo the Clown Book of World Records!!!
