Graffiti…


Writing 101 Day 8 prompt: Graffiti

Graffiti 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

Write your love

all over the walls of my soul.

Paint me

with sweet somethings

so I reflect

the art of your desire.

Put your prints all over my surface

so the world may read

your tactile message.

Paint me

with loving strokes

like a masterpiece

of passionate graffiti.
