Graffiti Woman


You have a face
but you are nameless;
the essence of your spray-painted smile
stopping me in my tracks.
Listen to the sounds of the city
from your bloodless soul and
whisper counsel from the shadows;
I am trusting of you.
Close your eyes
for your heart’s desires
must be kept secret;
do not unmask what you
wouldn’t want to be exposed.
You’re a stranger; a silhouette
expressing a simple majesty,
seen and unseen,
motionless on the street wall.
