the lift

© photoart of street mural

X marks the spot
pen and ink drawn outlines on the naked
an artful coupling veiled in hottest red

was it just a bare wall begging for paint pot
spare street canvas of passionate position
or maybe some directive in its juxtaposition?

if you can’t do this take the lift
do this and you’ll  need the lift
do this before you have need to use the lift

not necessarily a foul aimed shot
disgusting dig at the disabled – but a kind of elevation
wheelchair bound for a rooftop garden

Mature message for this week’s poetics: And the sign said..

  1. Now that’s a way to get a “lift” before taking the “lift!” Love this take on the prompt.
    We will be in Valparaiso, Chile next January and I am so excited to see all the street art there. I suspect it will be an amazing poetic muse 🙂
