Asphalt graffiti

Pretty pallid stuff compared to the works that Tombo finds in assorted underpasses, alleys and sewers; unfortunately, Tom's currently on hiatus, though PrescottStyle has just come up with a lovely graffiti UFO somewhere out the White Spar. (And, speaking of graffiti, there's that new fellow on line, Prescott Streets).

But, back to my subject. This quiet trail down the middle of Beach Street puzzled me when I saw it nearly a year ago and still does. Q #1 -- how was it made? Q #2 -- why? It isn't big and splashy like modern, upfront outlaw art, so why bother?

Perhaps what we have is a sedate older person, someone whose public expressions in the old days were limited to scratches in the dirt or mud and, on a very lucky occasion, in fresh sidewalk cement. Of course, I'm quite convinced that a bicycle was somehow involved.

Possibly the residuum of an incontinent, intoxicated Purient Trill.


PS: a picture of which is on the wall behind me.

It has a kind of minimalist elegance though, doesn't it?

bro -- a Trill, incontinent, is possibly a creature out of Dr. Seuss. Or is it simply one more of those obscure wallabies from OZ?

lucy -- how nicely you put it...Most people would merely ask me why the hell I bothered to post the pix!
