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.
