graffiti

cause we need a little controversy
’cause it feels so empty

This is my response to the prompt for Day Eight of the WordPress Writing 101 Poetry course. And, as the prompt is, err, amazingly, my very own prompt, I’m interrupting your enjoyment (momentarily) so that I can thank Ben Huberman for inviting me to contribute today, even though there are so many better qualified poets out there. By which I mean, those of you who can actually, you know, write, uh, poetry. You know who you are.

More to the point, thank you to all who have taken the trouble to find your way to my post!

The photo, by the way, was shot by me in the dark interior of the BIGZ building in Belgrade. If you’d like to find out more, or failing that, see what I saw, feel free to visit belgradestreets and check out bigz graffiti or  all that jazz or even broken, and then book a flight to Belgrade, and then, why not pop into a bookstore and take a look at my book! 😉

And hey, if you need more Poetry when this is all over, why not make a note to join Poetry 101 Rehab every Monday?

  1. In some cases it’s about getting even, for sure…your piece the essence of rebelliousness often found in these works of artful expression…thanks for sharing this great piece, Andy, and for the prompt!
