NaPoWriMo: Day 4 – You Go, Girl

Aretha Castle Haley Blvd, New Orleans


You Go, Girl

Laughter fills the booth in
between urgent whispers,
into the street making
passers-by turn around
to look with knowing


Note: “You Go, Girl” is a well known graffiti artist in the city. This is one of her more sedate pieces. If you, like me, find street art fascinating you might like to see my Flickr set of New Orleans street art here. I dreamed the first four words of this poem a few days ago and went looking in my Flickr to find a photo that might go along with it. The rest of the poem came after the photo.
