The Writing Is No Longer on the Wall

For months I have walked by here admiring
The bright pink heart with a halo? Bull’s horns?
A mix of Keith Haring and the Sacred
Bleeding Heart of Jesus like poetry
By Federico Garcia Lorca,
Those artists whose hearts were in the right place,
Written on the walls, scrawled for all to see,
Then hidden in a grave dark or unmarked.
But your writing’s no longer on the wall,
The passion-sprayed pink now painted over,
An invitation to new transgressions,
An absent reminder of those beauties
Doomed to exist for the briefest of stays
Because landlords prefer monotone grey.
