Though sometimes called monstrosity,
p o e t r y b o m b i n g and g r a ff I t i
are expressions of frustration
at mainstream pomposity
and all the other osities;
a way of exploration
in what is called street art,
vulgar and freaky
cheeky, sometimes creepy,
but true democracy at work.

I sincerely admire much graffiti, which can brighten up dreary concrete spaces with wit, skill and real passion. I did the poetry bombing last March, in various places including a café and among the flowers in the Botanical gardens. I must write more French poetry, as there’s no point in leaving poems that are incomprehensible to the finder.
