Poetry 101: Graffiti


Lady Urbana, tries to keep her values in a valueless world.

Her sensibility in the senseless city

Her class in a classless society


This piece was painted by South African street artist Faith47 on the side of a Portland building. When I saw it I instantly was drawn to it. The woman seemed so out of place in the urban setting around her. She has on this long dress and her is up in a style that has long past. I thought, what would a girl like her think of the world today?
