Art by AFI

hands ground
while walls rise
board ceilings
my knuckles whiten
the crowd looks away

It reads just like graffiti art, Debs!! Hey, I saw you tried to do a contest? When I tried mine last week, it also looked like yours and then I went back and did it again and it went through. I think if you try again, it works! Did i presume right that you were not able to post it? Try it one more time and see if it works!

Why, Debbie, I can imagine you were smiling as you wrote this...the sheer dare-deviltry of the youth! You have style, like the art. Kim :)
