Human Graffiti

Steven White

Subway cracks and things under the sky.
Human graffiti clasp their hands together
in unison as people walk on by.
The light dimming behind their eyes.

Human graffiti clap their hands together.
Their language filthy and rank.
Their mouths utter and cry
“Look at me you little fucker.”

Human graffiti their hands tied together
write their own story.
The words ugly and abusive.
They holler at whoever comes by.

Eyes and mouths move
in unison as people walk on by.
They mutter and sigh
“Subway cracks and things under the sky.”
