LiZ a piece drawn for me years ago by my brother artist Joseph Rodriguez.

“Graffiti Speaking”

Paint in the hands of poverty

sprays  loose on the demographic

“I’ll show you what I know!”

Palette pushes against an unseen power

that neglects, rejects, scorns youth

“I’ll show you what I can do, anyway!”

Silenced by a lack of opportunity, emotions frame perception

assaults a wall in distress, mixing media’s imagination

“I’ll show you something you can’t  ignore!”

Shower on vibrant images of experiences, bold, defiant

tapping  the conscience of the viewer

“This is where and how we live!”

Metropolitan whiz kids graffiti as mutiny

the power of the pen telling tales well into millennium

“Hey, world are you listening?”

Inspiring NYC graffiti artists
