Harmonious Lines

Harmony, Graffiti, Alley, Downtown Eastside, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
I find harmony
In places unexpected
A dirty, broken alley
Amid the smells
Of misery and death

Scrawled there
In pigment
And love
Arcs and lines
A language of hope
And possibility

Such is the presence of art
Even in a place
Where all beauty
Seems lost
And purpose
