I love street art in all its forms. This post is for Leya who says “creativity” for Lens-Artists photo challenge, for Rome’s 2772th birthday which was yesterday (and you thought you were old!) and for the most impressive art piece that I have seen last year.
Challenge 22: “I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that engages with another art form.”
Rome is dog walks and dog parks that make bestia seem like Luka Dončić in the NBA. Rome is loud and dirty and falling in and falling apart. Rome is history and history and history and just a little bit of present. Rome is discoveries and trash and rats and bees and boar and exploding buses. Rome doesn’t read but watches. Rome is full of people who want you to pay. Rome is everything growing and cats in cemeteries. Rome is beautiful where it’s ugly and ugly where it’s beautiful. Rome is orange sunsets and green fountains. Rome is blue sky and brown trees. Rome is brown eyes full of blue soul.
These lucky walls grew
hundreds of new ways to see.
Almost my dog’s eyes.

Here is some more Rome street art with my thoughts. It is often on the borderline between the options in the featured question. I like that.
- Here is my last year’s post (also for NaPoWriMo) with more photos of My Dog Sighs’ eyes.
- Here is his latest work in collaboration for Upfest in Bristol. New brilliant eyes!
- Here is my previous post with some other Rome’s street art.
For Lens-Artists Photo Challenge, hosted by Leya of To See A World in a Grain of Sand…: Creativity
