People Suck, Do 'Schrooms

San Francisco, CA - U.S.A.

There is someone who runs around the city
transforming the ends of pipes
into these colorful statements,
street art reminiscent of Smurf villages;
they are no taller than your ankle.

It was during one of the worst periods of my life,
and my black sense of humor caused me to laugh out loud
when I saw this lackluster attempt at graffiti --
created in no more than filthy dust --
with its subtle though coarse message:

Fuck the World
People Suck.

An ironic reflection.
The joke continued
as the owner of the home did not remove the offending message
from their garage door;
for at least a year,
I would pass it on a certain route to work.

I think we've all had those days.
And yet we can feel most alone at those times.
Even in a major metropolis.
