Paris 190024

cloaked
under moonlit skies
they pulse paint
tell their stories
with pictures and words
marking territory
emitting emotion
in adoration
or condemnation of
they breathe life onto
concrete, metal and wood
giving messages of hope
glorifying the un-glorified
in protest
vibrant voices
strike out
pleading with us to listen up
needing to be heard
they ask us to recognize
their pain or joy
with aerosol art
