Graffiti Burns


Recommended Posts

On a Glasgow wall I sprayed

an Abyssinian maid and a dulcimer

she played. The next night reading

Robbie Burns and Samuel Coleridge

I heard an exotic melody, I sprayed

the figure of Robbie Burns onto the wall

holding a rose beneath a red moon. He

stepped of the wall and asked me to spray

his wife, she failed to come to life until

Robbie sprayed the words of my love is like

a red red rose. I etched the effigy of Samuel

Coleridge onto the wall he stepped down-

demanded and directed me to create a rose

of intricate colour and texture-Coleridge

demanded I draw an albatross and that this

bird would be protected.

It appears some of these graffiti artists are not just talented, they're erudite. Enjoyed it, Eclipse. The ending especially made me smile.

eclipse- Although- I enjoy your poetry, I am often left wondering what to say... Not sure if you embody a certain imagist dream rationality or you skate on the cutting edge of rationality- The images are there- The structure is tight- but I leave feeling a ramble coming on- Hmmm...

A nice blend of urban art and culture which tempts the reader to different planes of thought. Benjamin
