Poem: Low Tech Reality show

Graffiti Hearts

Appreciating urban art, I see

“I love you, Tara” spray painted

on every other overpass in town.


A sweet, romantic story, I think

Until “They Trick Me, Baby”

appeared next to one of them.


A plea for mercy! So I cheered

on Graffiti Boy/hoped for forgiveness

but, alas, it was not to be.


“Tara” was soon crossed out

in sprayed splendor, replaced by

a heartfelt “I love you, Dorothy.”


Maybe this time?
One can only hope.
